Abstract [en]

This chapter deals with the temperature system of Eastern Ojibwe, an Algonquian language spoken in Canada and the US. The system differentiates lexically and morphologically between tactile, ambient and personal feeling temperature expressions. It also handles the cooling and warming parts of the temperature scale(s) differently. We also briefly discuss how sociological change in the conceptualisation of temperature has had an impact on morphological changes.
