Abstract:

In general structure all the Athapascan languages have great uniformity. The 
nouns, when not monosyllabic, are built upon monsyllables by suffixes, or are 
sentence verbs used as substantives. The verbs have adverbial prefixes 
expressing spatial relations, stems which often indicate the character and 
number of the subject or object, and suffixes with temporal, modal, and 
conjunctional force.

This general structure has been rather fully discussed in the treatment of the 
Hupa dialect (see LINCOM Americana 02), but, as said in another place, the 
Kato dialect differs from Hupa sufficiently to make them mutually unitelligible. 
While this is due chiefly to phonetic changes, in a lesser degree it is due to 
differences in vocabulary, particularly nouns of describing meaning. The 
suffixes of the verbs also differ considerably. The elements which compose 
the words of each dialect are nearly all identical except for the phonetic 
changes which exist (from the introduction). (Re-edition; originally published 
1912 in Berkeley; written in English)
