Abstract:

Pite Saami is a highly endangered Western Saami language in the Uralic
language family currently spoken by a few individuals in Swedish Lapland. This
grammar is the first extensive book-length treatment of a Saami language
written in English. While focussing on the morphophonology of the main word
classes nouns, adjectives and verbs, it also deals with other linguistic
structures such as prosody, phonology, phrase types and clauses. Furthermore,
it provides an introduction to the language and its speakers, and an outline
of a preliminary Pite Saami orthography. An extensive annotated
spoken-language corpus collected over the course of five years forms the
empirical foundation for this description, and each example includes a
specific reference to the corpus in order to facilitate verification of claims
made on the data. Descriptions are presented for a general linguistics
audience and without attempting to support a specific theoretical approach,
but this book should be equally useful for scholars of Uralic linguistics,
typologists, and even learners of Pite Saami.
