Chimariko Grammar : Areal and Typological Perspective, Paperback / softback Book

Chimariko Grammar : Areal and Typological Perspective Paperback / softback

Part of the UC Publications in Linguistics series

Description

The Chimariko language, now extinct, was spoken in Trinity County, California.

This reference grammar, based on data collected by Harrington in the 1920's, represents the most comprehensive description of the language.

Written from a functional-typological perspective, this work also examines language contact in Northern California showing that grammatical traits are often shared among genetically unrelated languages in geographically contiguous areas.
