Abstract: 

The analysis of sentential units of the Salishan language of Bella Coola is presented, as far as the expression of nouns in them is concerned. The author concludes that the archaic language of Bella Coola gives opportunity to trace that verbals were diachronically prior to nominals in the development of parts of the speech system.
