Title: Salish Languages and Linguistics: Theoretical and Descriptive Perspectives
Edited By: Ewa Czaykowska-Higgins
M. Dale Kinkade
Description:

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.
