Abstract:

nɬeʔkèpmxcín: Thompson River Salish Speech is a 600-page collection
presenting a variety of speech: 45 stories, prayers, songs, a conversation,
and a traditional oration, with interlinear grammatical analysis and English
translation. The speech was gathered from the last, best speakers in the
1970s and 1980s. The book uses formal devices to make the language
accessible to non-speakers. Each nɬeʔkèpmxcín sentence or clause is
followed by two explanatory lines: an English morpheme-by-morpheme gloss
and an English translation. The nɬeʔkèpmxcín is written in surface phonemic
form, using the American(ist) phonetic alphabet (APA). The book is a must-
have for speakers or learners of the language, Interior Salishanists, and those
interested in traditional Amerindian oral literature. It is intended to be a
companion volume to the Thompson River Salish Dictionary by Laurence C.
and M. Terry Thompson, which will be reprinted soon.

Whatcom Museum Publications is a continuation of the University of
Montana Occasional Papers in Linguistics (UMOPL). When the long-time
editor Tony Mattina retired from the University of Montana and moved to
Arizona, the series moved to the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham,
Washington.
