The Southern Tutchone language is related to all Athapaskan languages that have tone that is low-marked, while Northern Tutchone is related to all Athapaskan languages that have tone that is high-marked

The use of "all Athapaskan languages" here seems dubious to me - is this suggesting that the two lects of Tutchone sit on either side of an isogloss belonging to the entire language family? That would suggest an areal feature, not a genetic one. --Peter Farago (talk) 19:41, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
