A Vocabulary of the Younger Teguima (Ópata) Language
University of Arizona
A Vocabulary of the Younger Teguima (Ópata) Language. This work summarizes that copious data recorded in the late 1800s of the Teguima (Ópata) language of northern Mexico. Teguima is a member of the Opata subfamily of Uto-Aztecan, and this family is critical to the evaluation that Opatan, Yomemian (Yaqui, Mayo), and Tarahumaran (Raramuri/Tarahumara, Guarijío) constitute a larger genetic group (Taracahitic) within Uto-Aztecan. The sound pattern of Younger Teguima differs significantly from that of Older Teguima, which is described in the companion volume, A Vocabulary of the Older Teguima (Ópata) Language. An introduction summarizes the sound pattern and morphosyntax of the younger language. Slightly over 1,000 main entries are by morpheme. An English-Younger Teguima index lists compounds and derivatives found as subentries in the main section.
