[h2]Very Brief Ethnographic Commentary[/h2]

Mosquito ([i]Wíixšííʔasay[/i], lit. "little wailing creature") is the Hkóoł trickster character, and as such is vain, narcissistic, immature, and never learns lessons. This is obviously a standard Trickster story, and like any good Trickster story, while it's told partly for amusement there's a clear lesson -- namely to not do whatever it is the Trickster did.

The main polemic involves the proper conduct in guest-host relations, as we...

[h2]Clause Combining[/h2]

The primary means for linking clauses is through the [b][u]switch-reference (SR)[/u][/b] enclitics. This enclitic marks whether the subject of its clause is the same as ([b][u]SS = same subject[/u][/b]) or different from ([b][u]DS = different subject[/u][/b]) the subject of another clause, as well as some indication of the semantic link between the two clauses, although a fair amount is left to context to disambiguate.

Clauses can thus be divided into ...

[h2]Background[/h2]
Hikóómayíi is a highly endangered language, spoken with full fluency by a few dozen people (all over the age of 50), plus several hundred individuals (including some adolescents) with passable competency or who are able to understand but not speak it. The form spoken by younger individuals shows a number of simplifications and features heavily influenced by the dominant language of the region, Réĝledh, and such speakers tend to code-switch between Hikóómayíi and Réĝledh (...

things to note:

panel 1: The correct word is αρμμο (i.e. αρμ=μο food=1SG). Literal translation "what is becoming of my foond".

panel 2: Correctly spelled φομμτο'ν (i.e. φομμ-το-'ν steak=2SG=PROX). The word ΑΛΑΧ should be ΑΛΑΧΝΟΝ (i.e. α-λαχν-ον without-vegetable-N). Literal translation "your steank here VEGETALLESS you thus ordered sir"

[h3]Levels of Inflection[/h3]
In most contexts, Hikóómayíi verbs must be [b][u]fully inflected[/u][/b], meaning they include a person/number/TAM suffix in suffix slot 1 (see below), and can optionally include a following aspectual suffix (slot 2) or evidential suffix (slot 3). By contrast, [b][u]partially-inflected[/u][/b] verbs have restrictions on suffixes. These include:
[ul][li]Conditional/Temporal verbs (which take the switch-reference (SR) enclitics [b]=drá[/b] [sc]ss[/sc] or [b]=č...

[h2]Verbs[/h2]

[h3]Roots and Stems[/h3]
Verb [b][u]roots[/u][/b], the large majority of which are one or two syllables, are the uninflected bases upon which the verb word is constructed. They are written throughout this sketch between |single pipes|. Verb [b][u]stems[/u][/b] are the inflectable form of verbs -- i.e., they are able to directly take inflectional affixes. Many verb stems consist of roots plus derivational suffixes (though plenty of verb roots can be used as full stems ...

[h3]Aspect[/h3]

[h4]Obligatory Aspect Inflection[/h4]
All fully inflected verbs in Hikóómayíi take a suffix marking person/number/obviativity/animacy of the absolutive (S/P/R), mood/tense (realis, irrealis, or future -- see below), and aspect (perfective or imperfective). [b][u]Perfective[/u][/b] ([sc]pfv[/sc]) predicates are prototypically those viewed "externally," with a defined beginning and end, and no focus on internal structure. [b][u]Imperfective[/u][/b] ([sc]impfv[/sc]) pre...

[h3]Transitivity[/h3]
All verb roots in Hikóómayíi are inherently either [b][u]transitive[/u][/b] or [b][u]intransitive[/u][/b] (none are inherently ditransitive). Obviously, intransitive roots have one associated participant (S), while transitive roots have two (A and P). Many intransitive roots can be directly inflected for the person of S, without further modification:
