Title: Benasní - I Remember: Dene Sųłiné Oral Histories with Morphological Analysis
Written By: Josh Holden
URL: http://www.brill.com/benasni-i-remember-dene-su-line-oral-histories-morphological-analysis
Series Title: Brill's Studies in the Indigenous Languages of the Americas
Description:

In Benasní – I Remember: Dene Sųłiné Oral Histories with Morphological Analysis, Josh Holden presents twelve autobiographical narratives about cultural change from Dene Sųłiné elders in an Aboriginal community in northern Saskatchewan, Canada. In ten interviews and two monologues, the speakers recount their 20th century: the rhythms of traditional life, the catastrophe of epidemics and language loss, the dizzying technological changes, their ambivalence over the past and their anxieties for the future. Accompanying the original Dene texts and free translation is an analytical interlinear gloss applying rigorous morphological and semantic principles to the parsing and glossing of words. The innovative interlinearization distinguishes grammar from visible etymologies. The volume contains a morphological sketch to illuminate grammatical issues in the interlinearization.
