MULL-Lab will be meeting Tuesday, December 7 at 4:30pm. David Shanks will give a talk titled Possession in Southern Tutchone. An abstract for the talk is below. If you would like to attend but haven’t registered for MULL-Lab, you can do so here.
Description: Southern Tutchone is an indigenous language of the Dene (Athabaskan) family spoken in the Yukon. Like other Dene languages, it has morphologically rich verbs and simple nominals. This talk will outline the possessive system, which differentiates alienable, or optional, possession from inalienable, or obligatory, possession.
