Overview

Learn Mountain Maidu in 12 lessons.
Each lesson has a set of vocabulary words, explanation of grammatical elements, exercises, and answers. The glossary at the end includes the vocabulary from the lessons. The lessons start with simple sentences in the "today" verb tense, and advance through asking questions, composing commands and exhortations, word derivation, pronouns, past and future verb tenses, complex sentences, and expressing possibility. This is a book for everyday people wanting to revive the language, as well as linguists interested in language structure. The grammar is based on William Shipley's collection of Texts (1963), Roland Dixon's Texts (1912) and the teachings of native speaker Farrell Cunningham.
The fish-head version is written in an easy-to-read orthography, which involves the special fish-head character. This version of Mountain Maidu Grammar goes with the Mountain Maidu Dictionary, available at the end of August, 2015. This second edition has been updated with even more grammar.
