Abstract:

Coeur d'Alene, also known as Snchitsu'umshtsn, is a Southern Interior
(Idaho, USA) Salish language. This work presents a formal account of the
basic clause structure of this polysynthetic language within the tradition
of Minimalism and Distributed Morphology. The work arrives at an account of
the basic clause structure and an articulation of the left periphery of
Coeur d'Alene. In addition, an account of lexical affixation is presented.
Thus providing the first formal account of the language and adding to our
understanding of Coeur d'Alene, Salish languages, and languages of the
world more generally.

In addition, the work draws attention to the excellent scholarship of
Gladys Reichard, whose work has been crucial in any study of the Coeur
d'Alene language in the last ninety years. Using Reichard's unpublished
manuscripts and field notes, as well as consultation with the Coeur d'Alene
Language Program, the work draws on a corpus of data that demonstrates the
value of legacy material...and illustrates the importance of language
documentation, maintenance, and preservation to linguistic inquiry.
