Nuuchahnulth is known for its striking use of word-formation and complex inflection. This is the first book to provide a detailed description of the complex morphology of the language, based on material gathered when it was more viable than it is now. The description is embedded within a broad-ranging theoretical discussion of interest to all morphologists. It will provide an essential tool for researchers in Nuuchahnulth and related languages, in Wakashan in general and in Native American Studies.
