 Abstract:
 
 As a result of inroads from French and English speakers, Sitimaxa,
 the language of the Chitimacha people of southern Louisiana over the
 past 7,000 years, lost its last fluent speaker in 1940. Since that
 time the tribal Cultural Department has gathered all the extant
 language material, both audio-recordings and documentary, and has
 begun to revive language use through its school system and language
 training programs. A new generation of Sitimaxa speakers is now
 emerging, and the present grammar reflects the usage both of these
 speakers and of the last generation of fluent users of the language.
 The present text covers the following topics: Sounds and Spelling;
 Words, Sound Changes & Parts of Speech; Sitimaxa Verbs; Sitimaxa
 Nouns; Sitimaxa Particles; Making New Words in Sitimaxa; Sentences in 
 Sitimaxa; and a general summary of the grammar patterns of the
 language. Sample sentences are included.
