Excerpt from The American Race: A Linguistic Classification and Ethnographic Description of the Native Tribes of North and South America

Wherever the material permitted it, I have ranked the grammatic structure of a language superior to its lexical elements in deciding upon relationship. In this I follow the precepts and example of students of the Aryan and Semitic stocks; although their meth ods have been rejected by some who have written on American tongues. As for myself, I am abidingly convinced that the morphology of any language whatever is its most permanent and characteristic feature.
