A note on how weaving and knitting can enhance learning Salish reduplication patterns
There is a dearth of research on how learners acquire reduplication patterns in the Indigenous languages of North America. Additionally, most approaches to teaching reduplication (a process in which meaning is expressed by copying part of the word) utilize abstract concepts from linguistics to explain how to derive a reduplicated word from a base word. This paper outlines some strategies for incorporating key concepts from weaving and knitting into developing pedagogical materials for learning Salish reduplication patterns.
