A classic etymological dictionary in the style of Pokorny's Indogermanisches etymologisches Wörterbuch, resting on a fully worked out theory of comparative Salish phonology and providing a reconstruction for each etymology.
The Introduction (1-11) presents a classification of the Salish languages — basically that of Swadesh (UAL 16:157-67, 1950) — and an outline of the PS sound system, with correspondences, following K.'s previously outlined scheme (UAL 47:323-35, 1981). Dictionary entries are divided into reconstructed roots (12-202) and lexical suffixes (203-14), each section subdivided into elements that can be reconstructed to PS, and those that can be reconstructed only to Proto-Coast Salish or Proto-Interior Salish. There are separate short sections for Central Salish roots (roots attested only in the languages between Squamish and Twana, 215-18), and for local Coast Salish elements that show in the Interior Salish languages Lillooet and Thompson (219-31). The dictionary concludes with a short index of non-Salish elements that are cited in comparisons (232-3). This is the kind of cumulative work that can only be done slowly and carefully — K. has been at work on it since the 1960s — and that will be on every Salishanist's reference shelf for years to come.
