This is the first collection of articles devoted exclusively to the
study of Salish languages and linguistics. It is edited by two leading
scholars in the field of Salish studies, and includes a comprehensive
introduction to research on Salish languages, an extensive
bibliography of material on Salish languages, and 14 articles written
by well-known Salishanists, which, taken together, provide a broad and
balanced survey of current studies in Salish linguistics.
The collection brings together work on phonetic, phonological,
morphological, syntactic, ethnosemantic, and comparative-historical
issues and is organized so as to reflect research on these issues as
they relate to languages from different sub-groups within the Salish
language family.
This volume provides an up-to-date exemplification of both the
application of linguistic theories to Salish languages and the
relevance of Salish languages to linguistic theory.
