Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Klamath-Modoc is a Native American language that was spoken around Klamath Lake in what is now southern Oregon and northern California. It is the traditional language of the Klamath and Modoc peoples, each of whom spoke a dialect of the language. As of April 1998, it was spoken by only one person. Klamath-Modoc is thought to be a member of the Plateau Penutian branch of the Penutian language family, a family in which ablaut is common, just like in Indo-European. Evidence for this classification includes some consonant correspondences between Klamath-Modoc and other alleged Penutian languages. For example, the Proto-Yokuts retroflexes */ / correspond to Klamath-Modoc /t t /, and the Proto-Yokuts dentals */t t t / correspond to the Klamath-Modoc alveolars /t t t /.
