The first draft of the Miapimoquitch phonological sketch is finished.
If anyone is interested in getting a PDF, please email me and I'll be
happy to send one along with the usual solicitation of comments,
I should probably say a couple of things about it first, though. The
style and scope of the description is meant to emulate those found in
the volume edited by Harry Hoijer, _Linguistic Structures of Native
North America_. This means that it is a bit short on details, and the
theoretical orientation and descriptive practices might seem a bit ...
quaint. This was done on purpose; I'm supposing that the grammatical
sketch was written by one Richard Alma Leckler, grandson of Alvin
Walker (formerly Alma Walker). It was intended for the Hoijer volume,
but was not included because it was abandoned by the author for
personal and family reasons.
