Written in French, this reference grammar of the language of the Innus (also known as Montagnais) is the first substantial description of this Algonquian language spoken in Northeastern Quebec and Labrador, Canada. It is aimed not only at the international linguistic community, but also seeks to fill the needs of Innu speakers and language workers. The grammar provides a description of nominals (nouns, pronouns, demonstratives, possessive constructions), of the verb and its categories (voice, modalities), of sentence structure as well as word formation. The grammatical description is illustrated by examples from several dialects of the Innu language using the standard orthography implemented by the Tshakapesh Institute. A complete guide of verbal conjugations is provided.
