Alternate forms: Niska | Nishga | Nisgha | Nass
Contributor: Tarpent, Marie-Lucie
Extent: 0.1 linear feet
Description: Daythal Kendall's only explicitly Nisga'a item is a handout of Marie-Lucie Tarpent's "More on Nisgha Ergativity, Reflexives and Reciprocals" (Series 5). However, Tarpent also produced much on the Tsimshianic language family as a whole, some of which is also present in Kendall's collection. The most significant of these is the draft project "Penutian Morphological Comparisons", containing 200 pages of historical phonological comparisons within the hypothesized Penutian phylum, with a focus on Tsimshianic languages.
