Chipewyan Classificatory Verbs
Carter, Robin M.
International Journal of American Linguistics, 42, 1, 24-30, Jan 76
Verb stems are classified according to the particular group of nouns they appear with. The system reflects a taxonomy of situations involving concrete objects. A verb is chosen according to the shape and number of the object, if it is sitting, falling, etc., and according to the speaker's intention. (SCC)
