This poster was presented on 2021 April 8 - 11 at the 39th meeting of the West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics.

Provided abstract:
Unangam Tunuu (UT) is the sole representative of the ‘Aleut’ branch in the Eskimo-Aleut language family. While UT shares certain features with Eskimo languages, it employs some unique strategies to convey meaning. Here I investigate the category of MOOD. I argue that UT can be understood through the syntactic arrangement of a verbal clause and submit that a mood-marker in Unangam Tunuu includes an operator which minimally consists of two morphosyntactic features: one for irrealis, one for force.
