The Tsimshianic Languages in Historical and Areal Perspective
|The Tsimshianic Languages in Historical and Areal Perspective|
|"Sapir (1929) characterized "Tsimshian" as "a northern|
|Penutian outlier" but also "probably profoundly influenced by Mosan." Recent research shows that the major structural features and the basic roots of Tsimshianic are indeed|
|most compatible with Penutian affiliation (T 1997, 2000). This is an overview of the other influences on Tsimshianic, which has been isolated from Penutian for a very long|
|time, and instead surrounded by Tlingit (North), Athapaskan (East), Haida (West), Wakashan (South). It may also have been at one time in closer contact with Salishan."|
