Warihío is a spoken Uto-Aztecan language with two dialects. Upland Warihío
is found in the mountains of Chihuahua. River Warihío is spoken along the
Mayo River in Sonora, Mexico. Together with Yaqui, Mayo and the various
Tarahumara dialects, Warihío makes up the Taracahitic sub-group of the
Sonoran branch of Uto-Aztecan. All field and supporting data here come from
the River dialect.

This grammatical outline touches on all major aspects of River Warihío,
including a brief description of its phonology, major and minor word
classes, simple sentence structure, voice, and complex sentences structure.
The description and analysis of voice phenomena, including passives,
causatives, and applicatives, follows Shibatani's theoretical framework.
Also included is a brief section comparing some relevant aspects of Warihío
grammar with Uto-Aztecan languages.

River Warihío exhibits some interesting features contrasting with the rest
of the Uto-Aztecan family, including morpho-syntactic features
theoretico-typological relevant. River Warihío's flexible, pragmatically
motivated constituent order plus it lack of coding properties for
grammatical relations make this an unusual language both within the
Uto-Aztecan family as well as cross-linguistically.
