Title A Later View of Gitksan Syntax
Description:
A Later View of Gitksan Syntax
Abstract
"The paper emends and revises "Nass-Gitksan: an analytic ergative syntax" (Rigsby 1975). It argues that Gitksan is a language separate and distinct from Nisgha (Nass), and it provides general descriptions and discussion of some basic
syntactic constructions of Gitksan, including independent order, right-extra posed and focused sentence constructions, incorporated verb themes, antipassives and passives."
