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


The Seri language is rich in verbs and expressions for sounds and speech. This paper highlights this domain of the Seri lexicon and discusses sounds made by inanimate objects, animals, and humans.

Other excerpts from the Seri dictionary have been published in the 1997, 1998 and 1999 Work Papers. The complete dictionary was published in 2005; for a description and information about how to buy it, see http://www.sil.org/mexico/seri/G004-Diccionario-sei.htm.
