Abstract:

Athapaskan languages are well known for their intricate morphology, in
particular the complexity of their verbs. The significance of these
languages for linguistic theory is widely acknowledged. In this book, Keren
Rice offers a rich typological survey of morpheme ordering in Athapaskan
verbs, with implications for both synchronic grammar and language change.
She shows that verb structure is in fact widely predictable across
Athapaskan languages if appropriate syntactic factors and an overarching
principle of semantic scope are taken into account. The presentation also
includes a detailed study of argument and aspectual systems. This landmark
volume is the first major comparative study of its type for the Athapaskan
language family, combining descriptive depth with a contemporary theoretical
perspective. Clear and insightful, it will be welcomed by Athapaskanists,
typologists, historical and theoretical linguists alike.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. This money will go to help keep the 
List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 2006 
LINGUIST List Cruise for some Fund Drive fun!

http://linguistlist.org/cruise.html 

There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by 
check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:

http://linguistlist.org/donate.html

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
