Summary

This paper completes a description of Proto-Algic morphology begun by the author with a description of the verb (Proulx, 1985) and of pronouns (Proulx, 1991) by focusing on Proto-Algic noun structure and inflection. In Proto-Algic, a primary noun stem ends in a derivational final, a secondary one in a nominalizer. Both usually resemble demonstrative pronouns in shape. A detailed description is provided of the endings of third-person singular verbs, which show striking resemblance to those of some classes of nouns. The possible glottogonic origins of these endings is then discussed. (JL)
