Abstract. This paper sketches the salient features of the morphosyntax of Oob No'ok (Mountain Pima), a Uto-Aztecan language of northern Mexico previously undocumented in the published literature. The purpose is to facilitate comparative study within the Tepiman subfamily of Uto-Aztecan, to which Oob No'ok belongs. Appendices present a small collection of texts, an Oob No'ok morpheme list, and an index to that list.
Abstract. New writing systems for Chinese are mainly designed to perform one or more of four functions, in relation to the traditional logographic script, namely, auxiliary, supplementary, alternative, and superseding. So far only those intended for the auxiliary role have achieved success. Since schemes to perform each of the other three functions would affect the traditional script in one way or another, they have yet to overcome the resistance stemming from linguistic, psychological, pedagogical, political, and socio-cultural factors discussed in this paper.
