Speech Forms in Contemporary Jicarilla Apache Culture

To identify the significant varieties of speech forms in Jicarilla Apache culture, from the Jicarilla point of view, focusing on the range of acceptable speech within the community. The study will also include an investigation of the phenomenon of "code switching" as it occurs in a normal Jicarilla Apache conversation. Apache folk- theories of "pure" Apache language forms are also fundamental to the analysis of the contemporary status of the varieties of Jicarilla speech.
