In general structure all the Athapascan languages have great uniformity. The
nouns, when not monosyllabic, are built upon monsyllables by suffixes, or are
sentence verbs used as substantives. The verbs have adverbial prefixes
expressing spatial relations, stems which often indicate the character and
number of the subject or object, and suffixes with temporal, modal, and
conjunctional force.

This general structure has been rather fully discussed in the treatment of the
Hupa dialect (see LINCOM Americana 02), but, as said in another place, the
Kato dialect differs from Hupa sufficiently to make them mutually unitelligible.
While this is due chiefly to phonetic changes, in a lesser degree it is due to
differences in vocabulary, particularly nouns of describing meaning. The
suffixes of the verbs also differ considerably. The elements which compose
the words of each dialect are nearly all identical except for the phonetic
changes which exist (from the introduction). (Re-edition; originally published
1912 in Berkeley; written in English)
