dc.description.abstract Sochiapan Chinantec is a native American tone language spoken in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico. A phonemic analysis of Sochiapan Chinantec is given in Chapter 2; and in Chapter 3 various lexical formation strategies are discussed. The complexities of verbal inflection--changes in the tone, stress, and nucleus--which index the verb for person, tense, motion, mood, aspect, voice, transitivity, direct and inverse cross-referencing, reflexivity, and reciprocity are discussed in Chapter 4. In Chapter 5, there is a description of the Verb Phrase; the structure of the Noun Phrase is explored in Chapter 6; and prepositional phrases are discussed in Chapter 7. The focus of Chapter 8 is the clause. The primary clause constituents include the subject, object, and indirect object, which are discussed with respect to transitivity, split-ergativity, direct and inverse cross-referencing, the passive constructions (including impersonal passives), and the antipassive. The secondary clause constituents include the benefactive, recipient/source, manner, locative, comitative, temporal, instrumental, illocutionary, and vocative. In Chapter 9, I discuss complex and compound sentences; included are relative clauses, complementation, clauses of purpose, result, cause, conditionals, concessives, substitutives, comparatives, and the coordination of clauses. A description of interrogative constructions is given in Chapter 10, and in Chapter 11, there is a description of illocutionary adverbs and particles which a speaker may use to convey her/his attitude to the proposition and/or the addressee. Lastly, in Chapter 12, the topic-comment construction and the focus strategies are discussed. en
