Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Today 28 members of the Jamul Band of Mission Indians live on their six-acre reservation about 20 miles east of downtown San Diego, with others living on other reservations or in nearby urban areas. Fewer than ten still speak the language, all of them adults of at least middle age. Sorting through various controversies, Miller identifies Jamul as a variety of the Kumeyaay, or Diegueno, language Tiipay, itself part of the Yuman language family once spoken in the wider region. She describes the phonology, lexical structure, derivation, inflection, clause structure, clause combining, and auxiliary constructions. Sample texts and notes on discourse are also included. She has written widely about the language.
