Linguistics 100: Homework 4 Due at the beginning of class on Friday, September 25. Please remember: Write the name of your GSI on your assignment, and clearly indicate any collaborators. If your assignment is more than one sheet of paper, staple the pages together. Use a computer or typewriter; do not write by hand, except for phonetic symbols if needed. [ revised 4 pm Tuesday afternoon, September 22.] Problem 1: Rule ordering in Makah (4 points) Makah, a language belonging to the Wakashan language family, is spoken around Neah Bay in the northwestern corner of the Olympic peninsula in northwestern Washington State. In the data given below, the following suffixes (elements of words) are found: /-dak w / ‘have X’ /-uk/ ‘to be X’ /-a ì / ‘included’ /-a :P a ì / ‘keep X-ing’ /-juk/ ‘do’ /-ak w / ‘being or doing X’ /- P as-/ ‘in vessel’ /- P it ì < / ‘get X’ /-u P a ì / ‘perceive’ /-s/ ‘precisely, real’ /- P u : ts < / ‘his/her’ /- S it ì < / ‘X-ed’ /-qa : k/ ‘question’ Makah has no simple CVC words, i.e. one-syllable words whose vowel is short (except in restricted grammatical categories you may ignore). Various Makah words are shown below: the words on the left are relatively simple; the related words on the right are more complex, formed with the suffixes above. Asterisks (*) mark word-forms, not directly documented in the Makah grammar, that I have confidently made up using the rules provided there.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
