Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dene Suline or Chipewyan is the language spoken by the Chipewyan people of central Canada. It is a part of the Athabaskan family. Dene Suline has over 11,000 speakers in Canada, mostly in Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories, but only has official status in the Northwest Territories alongside 8 other aboriginal languages: Cree, Dogrib, Gwich'in, Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, Inuvialuktun, North Slavey and South Slavey. Bora-Wit to is a proposal to unite the Bora and Witotoan language families of northeastern Peru, southwestern Colombia, and western Brazil. Kaufman found the proposal plausible; by 1994 he had accepted it and added the Andoque language.Kaufman lists B ran and Wit toan as separate families. He does not show internal branching. Nipode and M n ca are listed as dialects of a single Meneka language.show more
