This is the final report of the two-year project “Word Classes, Morphology and Applications to Language Teaching in Amis”, which is a sub-project of the integrative project entitled “Word Classes, Morphology and Applications to Language Teaching in Formosan Languages.” This report summaries the findings and results of the following three tasks: (1) proposing a set of criteria for classifying words in Amis; (2) reexamining the word classes and their sub-classes based on the earlier literature and the data collected, and (3) designing word class teaching activities based on the teaching plan and goals set in the integrative project. I propose that the major criteria for categorizing Amis word classes should be morphosyntactic, and the semantic- functional criteria should be used as secondary evidence. I also discuss the following Amis word classes, including the open classes and closed classes, in this report: nouns, case markers and the preposition, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, linkers, and interjections and particles. Furthermore, I suggest that the teaching of word classes should follow the communicative approach, and I also design the following activities for teaching nouns and verbs in this report: mechanical activities, meaningful activities, and communicative activities.
