Abstract:
			
Betoi was once spoken by a people of the same name who located in an
area of the extensive region of the llanos of the Orinoco, bounded on
the south by the Sarare River and on the north by the Uribante. The
area is today included in the western extremity of the Apure State of
Venezuela not far from the border of that country with Colombia. Betoi
is a dialect of an extinct language (an isolate) spoken at contact in
the same area and along the nearby Arauca River by numerous other
tribes and peoples.
	
The author's intention with this brief monograph is to present for
Betoi all the knowledge that he has been able to gather from all of
its surviving material. The present work therefore includes chapters
on phonology, morphology, and syntax, as well as the two available
texts (with morphemic analysis), and a word list. The introductory
chapter deals with the sources attesting Betoi and the socio- and
geolinguistic situations. In this chapter, one can also find a
discussion on Betoi co-dialects. (also see the LINCOM webshop:
