Tsilhq?t’?n, also known as Chilcotin, is a northern Athabaskan
language spoken by the people of the Chilco River (Tsilhq?x) in
Interior British Columbia. This language is spoken by approximately two
thousand adults in six reserves, and both spoken and written forms are
taught as part of school curricula. Until now, the literature on
Tsilhq?t’?n contained very little description of the language.
With forty-seven consonants and six vowels plus tone, the phonological
system is notoriously complex.
This book is the first comprehensive grammar of Tsilhqu?t’i?n.
It covers all aspects of linguistic structure -- phonology, morphology,
and syntax -- including negation and questions. Also included are three
stories passed down by Tsilhq?t’?n elders Helena Myers
(translated by Maria Myers), William Myers, and Mabel Alphonse
(translated by Bella Alphonse), which are annotated with linguistic
analysis. The product of decades of work by linguist Eung-Do Cook,
A Tsilhq?t’?n Grammar makes an important contribution to
the ongoing documentation of Athabaskan languages.
