Toba or Namqom is a Guaykuruan language spoken by the Toba Indians in
Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay. The majority of these speakers
(25,000) are found in the northeastern Argentine provinces of Chaco
and Formosa. About 1,000 more are scattered through the adjacent Gran
Chaco region of Bolivia and Paraguay. Aside from this central zone,
recent immigration has led to the settlement of about 1,000 speakers
in the Gran Buenos Aires area and about the same number in several
cities in the province of Santa Fe. The Toba are the largest
indigenous group in the northeastern region of Argentina, and the ones
with the greatest influence among the Indian and the non-Indian
regional population. Toba is closely related to four other languages
of the Guaykuruan family: Mocovi, Pilaga, Kadiweu (Mbaya), and Abipon
(extinct). This work will provide a linguistic overview of the
fundamental features of the language. Toba is an OV language, but
other patterns of word order are possible. A discussion of important
syntactic and semantic properties of the agreement system will be
provided. The sketch will also include a detailed description of the
phonology and morphology as well as several short texts with
interlinear translations and a glossary.
