About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > This book is the first complete descriptive grammar of Lillooet, an Indigeus Canadian language spoken in British Columbia, w threatened with extinction. The author discusses three major aspects of the language - sound system, word structure, and syntax - in great detail. The classical structuralism method of analysis, as developed in North America by Leonard Bloomfield and his followers, is used to look at every aspect of Lillooet in terms of its function and position within the whole structure of the language. Van Eijk explains terms and procedures in order to make the book accessible t only to the advanced linguist, but also to the undergraduate student with basic linguistic training. Written with great clarity and well organized, the book is illustrated with copious examples drawn from many years of fieldwork in St'at'imc territory.
