Title: A Grammar of Creek (Muskogee)
Written By: Jack B. Martin
URL: http://www.nebraskapress.unl.edu/product/Grammar-of-Creek-Muskogee,674782.aspx
Series Title: Studies in the Anthropology of North American Indian Series
Description:

Creek (or Muskogee) is a Muskogean language spoken by several thousand
members of the Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole nations of Oklahoma and by
several hundred members of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. This volume is the
first modern grammar of Creek, compiled by a leading authority on the
languages of the southern United States.

Intended for scholars, students, and Creek instructors, this reference grammar
describes all the major morphological and syntactic patterns in the language.
Special attention is given to pitch accent and tone, active agreement, locative
prefixes, tense, aspect, and switch reference. The description covers several
hundred years of documentation and draws heavily on materials written by
Creek speakers. It is likely to be the definitive source on the language for years
to come.
