Abstract:

This book investigates the contact between Arawak and Tucanoan
languages spoken in the Vaupes river basin in northwest Amazonia,
which spans Colombia and Brazil. In this region language is seen as a
badge of identity: language mixing is resisted for ideological
reasons. The book considers which parts of the language categories are
likely to be borrowed. This study also examines changes brought about
by recent contact with European languages and culture, and the
linguistic effects of language obsolescence.
