Title [The Semantics of Classification in Koyukon Athabaskan]
Description:The Semantics of Classification in Koyukon Athabaskan
"I will suggest here that the aspectual system of the language classifies verbal actions in a manner that is parallel to the way that gender and classificatory verbs verbs classify nouns. I'll begin with a brief summary of Koyukon noun classification, and then go on to demonstrate how aspect works to classify verbs into categories or types of action."
