Chapter Summary

Applicative suffixes, like many verbal suffixes in Salish, are heterogeneous: their forms are not always in a one-to-one correspondence with their functions. An applicative suffix often has more than one semantic function, and the same semantic function may be marked by more than one applicative suffix. Because of this complexity, the task of making descriptive generalizations concerning the Salish applicative system has been a challenging one. This concluding chapter gives a brief reprise of the Salish applicative suffixes. It discusses the key properties of the Salish system. Finally, the chapter provides some suggestions for future research.

Keywords: applicative suffixes; Salish
