About this title:

Synopsis: This book offers a comprehensive view of the morphology, syntax, and semantics of applicatives in Salish, a language family of northwestern North America. Applicative constructions, found in many polysynthetic languages, cast a semantically peripheral noun phrase as direct object. Drawing upon primary and secondary data from twenty Salish languages, the authors catalog the relationship between the form and function of seventeen applicative suffixes. The semantic role of the associated noun phrase and the verb class of the base are crucial factors in differentiating applicatives. Salish languages have two types of applicatives: relationals are formed on intransitive bases and redirectives on transitive ones. The historical development and discourse function of Salish applicatives are elucidated and placed in typological perspective.

About the Author: Kaoru Kiyosawa, Ph.D. (2007) in Linguistics, Simon Fraser University, has worked intensively on the comparative study in Salish languages. Her research includes the morphosyntactic analysis of verbal afffixes such as object agreement and transitive inflection. Donna B. Gerdts, Ph.D. (1982) in Linguistics, University of California, San Diego, is Professor of Linguistics at Simon Fraser University. She has published extensively on the morphology, syntax, and semantics of Halkomelem Salish, based on over thirty years of fieldwork with elders in British Columbia.
