Abstract

Abstract:

The Tahltan lexicon has been noticeably affected by Tlingit. This article presents that portion of Tahltan lexicon that is rooted in Tlingit, and describes semantic and morphological properties of, and phonemic changes undergone by, Tlingit-derived vocabulary. Historical sources indicate that the principal forces driving transfer of vocabulary from Tlingit to Tahltan are trade-and culture-related contact, migrations, remigrations, and intermarriage.
