Work Papers of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session

 

The Work Papers of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session ("SIL-UND Work Papers") is a series of working papers in linguistics and related fields, published semi-regularly since 1957, by staff and students affiliated with the Summer Institute of Linguistics, which offered classes on the UND campus from 1952 to 2019 as part of the university's linguistics program. The series appeared annually in print from 1957 to 1996 (volumes 1-40), then converted to electronic publication starting in 1997 (volume 41 onward). Almost all the papers in the series are now available in UND's Scholarly Commons. Articles from the paper volumes 1-40 are scanned (non-searchable) PDFs, while starting with volume 41, the PDFs are the searchable files that were originally published elsewhere on UND's website.

Copyright for each article rests with the original author(s), and for the series as a whole with SIL International. Permission is hereby granted to make copies of any article or volume in the series for nonprofit use, as long as it is not modified and full publication information is retained in each copy.
