Title: The Morphology of the Hupa Language
Written By: Pliny Earle Goddard
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Americana
Description:

The Hupa are a small community isolated in their home by the surrounding
mountains. The valley which bears their name is in Humboldt county,
California, on the Trinity river a few miles above its confluence with the
Klamath. They number now about 450. The older people speak their own
language chiefly, the younger all employ the Hupa language in their home life,
but have a good command of English for their intercourse with white people.

The Hupa language belongs the Athapascan stock, however it differs widely
from the other languages of this stock. In the presentation of the
morphological facts the number of examples has not been limited, that the
conclusions drawn may be easily and quickly justified, and that material may
be available for comparative studies. Little regard has been paid to the terms
and forms of formal grammar, since they tend to obscure the facts of a
language in many respects quite different from those to which they were
originally applied (adopted from the introduction).

Contents: Nouns (classified according to form and lentgh, monosyllabic with
possessive prefix, polysyllabic without descriptive meaning, verbs as nouns,
etc), pronouns, numerals, adjectives, verbs (classified and structure), roots
listed in alphabetic order, suffixes, etc. (Re-edition; originally published 1905
in Berkeley; written in English).
