A Typological Overview of the Seri Language

By Stephen A. Marlett


This paper presents a concise overview of some typological characteristics of Seri, a language isolate spoken in northwestern Mexico. Glosses are given word by word only when indicated by precise alignment; otherwise they are given phrase by phrase. References to various more detailed descriptive works on Seri are not indicated in the text itself; one may consult the references at the end since the titles clearly indicate the content. The data are cited in the practical orthography (see section 5 for details on the sounds)

Topics: Seri, passive, typology, tense, reflexive, Language. Linguistic theory. Comparative grammar, P101-410
