Chumashan languages have been the topic of linguistic studies on a number of grammatical phenomena: reduplication (Applegate 1976; Saba Kirchner 2010), sibilant harmony (Beeler 1970; Harrington 1974; Mithun 1997; Poser 2004), nominalization (Mithun 2002), and more (Mithun 1999, Wash 2001). However, the list of completed dictionaries and grammars of Chumashan languages is short, which can be particularly problematic when developing revitalization language materials. This chapter gives a sketch of Chumashan grammar, as well as current revitalization efforts for Chumashan languages.
