Abstract

It is hoped that the present study will contribute to the knowledge of the grammatical structure of Keresan, which to the present has received little systematic treatment. Published grammatical material is confined to Boas' annotated Laguna texts and Toomey's brief outline. Unpublished manuscripts include Spencer's Master's Thesis which contains considerable data but suffers from faulty transcription, a failure to keep the several dialects separate and a lack of an over-all structural analysis. At the present time a thorough analysis of Acoma Keresan is being undertaken by Wick R. Miller of the University of California.
