A Proto-Siouan nominal number suffix *-ka?
Carlo Pertica
December 2022
 

This paper aims to propose a new interpretation of the *-ka ending detectable in many Proto-Siouan reconstructed nouns. Through the semantic analysis of its recurrences (in zoonyms, kinship terms and mass object nouns) we will propose, by the comparison with a potential typological parallel, an original number marking value of this suffix.
