Title: Dora Noyes DeSautel |a k| captikWL
Subtitle: [Okanagan Salish Narratives]
Written By: Anthony Mattina
Madeline DeSautel
URL: http://www.umt.edu/ling/UMOPL/umopl15.htm
Description:

This book is an edition of eight Colville-Okanagan Salish captík^ߨ (myths, legends) narrated in the 1970s by Dora Noyes DeSautel (1902-1982). A biographical sketch of the narrator, written by Adrian Holm, opens the book. An introductory section describes where and how the narratives were told, recorded, and edited; includes the free translations of the narratives along with brief explanatory notes; and sketches the basic inflect-ional facts of the language. The rest of the volume is the interlinearization of the eight texts in four lines: the surface phonetics, the segmentation of the line in stems and inflectional affixes, the morpheme gloss line, and the free translation. A glossary of all morphemes that occur in the texts completes the book. An audio
CD of the eight narratives accompanies the book.
