Abstract:

This book offers a comprehensive view of the morphology, syntax, and
semantics of applicatives in Salish, a language family of northwestern North
America. Applicative constructions, found in many polysynthetic languages,
cast a semantically peripheral noun phrase as direct object. Drawing upon
primary and secondary data from twenty Salish languages, the authors catalog
the relationship between the form and function of seventeen applicative suffixes.
The semantic role of the associated noun phrase and the verb class of the base
are crucial factors in differentiating applicatives. Salish languages have two
types of applicatives: relationals are formed on intransitive bases and
redirectives on transitive ones. The historical development and discourse
function of Salish applicatives are elucidated and placed in typological
perspective.
