Abstract

The series of papers of which this is the first will attempt to restate in summary fashion the grammatical structures of a number of American Indian languages. The languages to be treated are those presented in Harry Hoijer and others, Linguistic Structures of Native America, New York 1946.1 These restatements are not based on new field work, but on the contributions in this volume and on the chief published treatments of the languages in question, as well as on limited manuscript material. While the other publications and manuscript material have been consulted for additional details and for purposes of checking results, the chief basis for each restatement is the corresponding contribution in LSNA (to which the reader is referred throughout), since a major purpose in the present series is comparability with these contributions.
