This paper is based on the fieldwork I did on the Chemehuevi language during the summer of 1969 on the Colorado River Indian Tribes Reservation near Parker, Arizona. To the best of my knowledge, prior to 1969, there had not been any published research on the Chemehuevi language. (1) Subsequently, two publications of Chemehuevi that include phonology have appeared (Laird 1976; Press 1979). According to Press (1979), the Chemehuevi reside in the eastern areas of San Bernardino and Riverside counties of California, as well as near Parker, Arizona, on the Colorado River Indian Tribes Reservation, where I did my research. Chemehuevi is part of the Southern Numic languages and is closely related to Southern Paiute, briefly described by Sapir (1930).
