Summary

An analysis of pronouns in Proto-Algic, the ancestor of Proto-Algonquian and other languages, revealed that the Proto-Algic demonstrative roots and locatives had three inflectional endings, referring to spatial or temporal distributions of entities, which evolve into the gender systems of Yurok and Algonquian. Proto-Algic had two discourse pronouns. One was semantically associated with past time, and the other developed into Algonquian future markers. The Algonquian verbs of "being (somewhere)" also all come from among these deictics. Proto-Algic also had a relative pronoun, instrumental in the development of some types of changed conjunct, and an associative deictic that produced a marker of obviation. A 64-item bibliography is included. (MSE)
