Incorporating Languages

 

languages in which incorporation is one of the principal methods of structure. A number of Paleosiberian (Paleo-Asiatic) languages (Chukchi, Koryak, Aliutor, Kerek, and Nivkh) and languages of the North American Indians (Dakota, Tsimshian, and Paiute) are incorporating languages. Languages such as Eskimo and Aleut are sometimes classed among the incorporating languages, although they are in fact purely agglutinative.
