Coyote Stories II

This volume includes 12 stories from languages of the American southwest presented in numbered parallel format. Each of the stories in this collection is accompanied by morphological analyses and grammatical notes. This format makes explicit the structure of the language and illustrates the richness of  grammar as it is used in context. These texts will be of interest to anthropologists, linguists, typologists, and aficionados of oral narrative, as well as to speakers and learners of Native American languages.
