Title:A Tsilhqút'ín grammar
Contributor (author):Cook, Eung-Do
Creator:Cook, Eung-Do
Description:Book. ca.647pp From back cover: Tsilhqut'in, also known as Chilcotin, is a northern Athabaskan language spoken by the people of the Chilco River (Tsilhox) in Interior British Columbia. Approximately two thousand adults in six reserves speak Tsilhqut'in, and both spoken and written forms are taught as part of school curricula. Until now, the literature on Tsilhqut'in contained very little description of the language. With forty-seven consonants and six vowels plus tone, the phonological system is notoriously complex. This book is the first comprehensive grammar of Tsilhqut'in. It covers all aspects of linguistic structure - phonology, morphology, and syntax - including negation and questions. Also included are three stories passed down by Tsilhqut'in elders Helena Myers (translated by Maria Myers), William Myers, and Mabel Alphonse (translated by Bella Alphonse), which are annotated with linguistic analysis. The product of decades of work by linguist Eung-Do Cook, A Tsilhqut'in Grammar makes an important contribution to the ongoing documentation of Athabaskan languages. Citation: UBC Press
