Abstract:

West Greenlandic Eskimo, a part of the Eskimo-Aleut language family spoken
all across the Arctic, is primarily found among the Native peoples of central
west Greenland. In this highly nuanced study of West Greenlandic, linguist
Anna Berge examines how the speaker's role affects syntactic structures within
discourse. Also included are transcripts of conversations with fluent Native
speakers, providing a practical context in which to examine these grammatical
questions.

This study was the winner of the prestigious Mary R. Haas Award, presented
annually by the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the
Americas, the highest award given in the study of Native languages.
