Description

Excerpt from The Yokuts Language of South Central California As the grammatical use of reduplication is confined, it follows that nearly all formal expression in the language is due to suf fixion, extended and aided somewhat by vocalic mutation. In view of the large part left to this process to fill, it is surprising that altogether scarcely thirty formal suffixes have been found in the language. As this number includes case and number suffixes as well as modal and temporal ones, it is evident that the economy which the language exercises in its means of expressing form extends also to the grammatical ideas expressed. The struc ture of the language is therefore necessarily simple. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
