This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907 Excerpt: ...from a radical fiet-im. One form of verbal reduplication, or rather monosyllabic stem-duplication, consists of a doubling of the syllable with a transposition of the vowel of the second syllable between the two stems: ka'm, ka'm-ji, ka'm-a-k'm-ac; t'uy, t'ui-ju, t'ui-t'ui, and t'uy-u-t'y-uwuc; day, dai-ji, dai-dai, and day-a-dy-ac. On the other hand metathesis, induction, and suppression of consonants are as rare as they are common in vowels. Doubling of vowels as an accompaniment of length is not infrequently discernible, but is less marked than for instance in Yuki and some other American languages. Diphthongs may be said scarcely to occur in the language. Ai, au, oi, ui, eu, iu occur, but almost invariably either finally, where they may be the natural result of original y or w; or before vowels, where their second elements almost certainly represent y or w; or, if before consonants, it is in cases in which the second element of the diphthong can be shown to be the remnant of a stem y or w intermediate between two vowels; as in heut from the stem hiwet. Two verb-stems, waik to lose and waid to breakfast, apparently contain radical diphthongs. Guiha and koiwoc are more doubtful cases in nouns. As waid forms waid-ji but waad-ad, it may be that it stands for disyllabic wayid, which should according to rule become wayid-ji and wayad-ad; so that even if this diphthong is radical it is treated in the application of the system of vocalic harmony as if it were a disyllable. Certainly the majority of the not very abundant diphthongs in the language are resolvable into a simple vowel plus y or w. CONSONANTS. Surds, sonants, and aspirates are found in all the five series of sounds that will be described. Nasals occur corresponding to k, t, and p; spirants exist, oth...
