Coast Salish


Coast Salish is not a language. It is the name for a group of languages within the Salishan language family consisting of the Central Salishan languages, the Tsamosan languages, and Tillamook. It is more of a geographical term than a linguistic term. Experts on Salishan languages do not consider it to be a valid genetic grouping.
