Abstract

Abstract:

Salish languages show a wide variety of names for ‘black bear’ and ‘grizzly bear’. A number of these are doubtless of great antiquity and some of them may go back to Proto-Salish. However, reconstruction of the protoforms seems problematic in light of inter-Salish and extra-Salish borrowing and of what appears to be extensive taboo-driven lexical replacement.
