A Grammar of the Northern Paiute Language

This fellowship will support the preparation for publication of a comprehensive grammatical description of Northern Paiute (Western Numic; UtoAztecan), a highly endangered language of western North America. The proposed description will incorporate a more complete understanding of grammatical aspects of the language resulting from 1) a significantly expanded text corpus developed by the Principal Investigator in collaboration with elder fluent speakers and language teachers and 2) access to the extensive grammatical notes of the late Sven Liljeblad and other legacy materials from different dialects currently archived in Special Collections at the University of Nevada at Reno and at the University of California at Berkeley. The entire fellowship tenure will be dedicated to the preparation of the core of the grammatical description. (Edited by staff)
