Abstract:
			
Comparative and classificatory studies of Cariban languages, despite
their long history (starting with Gilij in 1782), have been few and
unsatisfactory, mainly due to the lack of necessary documentation of
the languages in question. Based on a large amount of new descriptive
data, as well as on published sources, the present work attempts to
demonstrate the closer genetic relationship between a subgroup of
three Cariban languages, Akuriy�, Tiriy� and Karihona, the last two of
which were considered to belong to very distant branches of the family
in a still widely cited classification (Durbin 1977). This
demonstration takes the form of a reconstruction of the main aspects
of the segmental phonology and inflectional morphology (person,
number, evidentiality, tense/aspect/mood) of the proto-language, which
the author proposes to call Proto-Taranoan. A preliminary etymological
dictionary, as well as some remarks on the history of the speakers, is
also included.
