Title: Linguistic Theory and Complex Words
Subtitle: Nuuchahnulth Word Formation
Written By: John Stonham
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403903484
Description:

Nuuchahnulth is known for its striking use of word-formation and complex
inflection. This is the first book to provide a detailed description of the
complex morphology of the language, based on material gathered when it was
more viable than it is now. The description is embedded within a
broad-ranging theoretical discussion of interest to all morphologists. It
will provide an essential tool for researchers in Nuuchahnulth and related
languages, in Wakashan in general and in Native American Studies.
