Title: A morfossintaxe da língua Parkatêjê
Written By: Marília Ferreira
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Native American Linguistics 50
Description:

A língua Parkatêjê é uma língua em perigo de extinção, que pertence ao
tronco Macro-Jê. Somente 10% de um povo que soma aproximadamente 400
pessoas, fala essa língua no sudeste do Estado do Pará (Brasil),
Partindo-se de uma perspectiva funcional-tipológica foram descritos e
analisados aspectos centrais da morfossintaxe: as classes de palavras; a
sintaxe das sentenças independentes; o sistema de marcação de caso nessas
sentenças; alguns mecanismos de derivação verbal; o fenômeno da
incorporação nominal e as construções verbais seriais. O Parkatêjê é uma
língua de marcação no núcleo, que apresenta um sistema sofisticado de
indicar as relações entre núcleos e argumentos, quando há re-arranjos na
sintaxe usual de suas estruturas.

The Parkatêjê language is spoken by two groups, which live in two villages
very close to each other: one is located at km 25 and the other at km 30 on
BR-222 highway, in the southeast of Para state. There are about 400 people
in both villages. The data used in this thesis were collected in Mãe Maria
village, located at km 30. This thesis presents a typological-functional
morphosyntatic description of some aspects of the Parkatêjê language, which
belongs to the Macro-Jê stock. This work presents the description of: (i)
word classes; (ii) the syntax of simple sentences; (iii) the case-marking
system; (iv) some mechanisms of verbal derivation; (v) nominal
incorporation phenomena and (vi) serial verb constructions. Parkatêjê is a
head-marking language and it presents a very interesting system for
indicating the relation between heads and arguments. In the case of nouns
and some transitive and non-active intransitive verbs, for example, this
relationship is shown by relational prefixes.
