Notes

Abstract: Klallam expresses complex paths in constructions that involve series of
motion and location verbs. When no medial legs are mentioned, the end legs
(source and goal) of a path are denominal verbs marked by prefixes meaning
ʻgo toʼ, ʻgo fromʼ, and ʻbe atʼ. Medial legs, marked by a verb meaning ʻgo
viaʼ, differ from end legs in that their constituent structure must include a
prepositional phrase specifying the trajectory or manner of motion. When a
medial leg is specified, a goal appears as a renominalized derived verb in a
complement clause. The legs form distinct constituents that can be put in any
order, with the subject and other enclitics following whichever word comes
first.
