I'm trying to find a reference for a description of relational nouns in a
Mesoamerican language. Can anyone point me to a grammar or an article that
has a description of relational nouns? I'm trying to see whether this
applies to the language I'm working on, Kurripako (Arawak).

Any help appreciated!
