Plains Cree, a member of the Algonquian (Algic) language family, is spoken across large parts of present-day Alberta and Saskatchewan. Plains Cree is a polysynthetic language which can make the structure of word, especially verbs, appear quite complicated to the learner. In this course, students will develop analytical skills through which grammatical complexity can be approached in a systematic manner. The course will be especially useful to learners and teachers of Plains Cree by revealing the inherent logic and systematicity in Plains Cree grammatical structure.
