Dene-Yeniseian Language Family: Evidence for a Back-Migration to the Old World?
The 2012 Dene-Yeniseian Workshop took place on March 24 at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Since the seminal presentation by the West Washington University linguist, Edward Vajda, of morphological and lexical evidence relating the small Yeniseian language family from Western Siberia and Na-Dene (Eyak-Tlingit-Athabascan) languages in North America, the annual Dene-Yeniseian Workshop deserves everybody’s attention.
