The Arawak or Arowak inhabit the costal districts of Surinam and British Guiana; they formerly lives still further East, even as far as the mouth of the Orinoco and Trinidad. In this work Brett's texts (1856) have been used in the first place, and an endeavor has been made to discuss all the particularities of the language as found in these texts (from the preface).
Contents: Rules for pronunciation, finite verbs, character of the Arawak words, infinite verbs, auxiliary verb a, intensives, conjunctions, formation of verbs, classes of utterances, family relations, origins of the Arawak language, etc.
