Murie, in contrast, as well as the Skiri speakers with whom Lesser and Weltfish worked in the late 1920s and 1930s, consistently had geminate tt. In the 1960s and 1970s, all of the speakers with whom I collaborated also always had tt, except for Mrs. Pratt, whose speech consistently had kt. There were several lexical items that she pronounced with a geminate tt, but they were clearly exceptions. When she repeated the sound-recorded speech of other Skiri speakers, she was oblivious to the articulation of geminate tt clusters, repeating them consistently as kt, even when I remarked on the difference.

All verbs occur in both independent and subordinate forms. Independent forms do not take a suffix, whereas subordinate forms do take one. Each of the major classes of verbs is, in part, defined by its distinctive subordinate suffix, which defines its class. Descriptive stems, for example, take the subordinate suffix -u, while locative verbs take the suffix -wi. Active and stative verbs, in contrast, belong to one of four subclasses, of which two are marked by different vowel suffixes, one by a final-syllable stress change, and one by the lack of a suffix.
