Comment: with accompanying cd

This book is an edition of eight Colville-Okanagan Salish captikWL
(myths, legends) narrated in the 1970s by Dora Noyes DeSautel
(1902-1982). A biographical sketch of the narrator, written by Adrian
Holm, opens the book. An introductory section describes where and how
the narratives were told, recorded, and edited; includes the free
translations of the narratives along with brief explanatory notes; and
sketches the basic inflect-ional facts of the language. The rest of
the volume is the interlinearization of the eight texts in four lines:
the surface phonetics, the segmentation of the line in stems and
inflectional affixes, the morpheme gloss line, and the free
translation. A glossary of all morphemes that occur in the texts
completes the book. An audio CD of the eight narratives accompanies
the book.
