Abstract

This book is solid and full of technical details a trained linguist can really sink their teeth into. Brian Stubbs has toiled for decades as one of the foremost Uto-Aztecan linguists on the planet. Many thought his highly-acclaimed 2011 Uto-Aztecan: A Comparative Vocabulary would be his magnum opus. Turns out it was only Stubbs' warmup act. All these years he has been patiently gathering massive data that shows profound Semitic and Egyptian influences in the language family spoken by Utes and Shoshoni on the north, Nahuatl on the south, and Hopi in between. This is a revolutionary, paradigmchanging book. This is a highly recommended book for serious students of native American cultures.
