Title: Des Noms et Des Verbes en Tupi-Guarani
Subtitle: État De La Question
Edited By: F. Queixalós
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Native American Studies 37.
Description:

Tupi-Guarani is a major South American language family which has been the
object of sustained attention from the very beginnings of the European
presence on the continent. Today it can be considered a relatively well
known family of languages, in terms of description of individual languages
as well as in terms of comparative studies.

A number of grammatical topics show interesting characteristics in the
languages of the family, and it is worth divulgating both the data and the
typological issues raised by these data. The book, whose contents results
form an international meeting held in French Guyana in January 2000,
addresses one of these topics: the basis for a distinction between nouns
and verbs. The issue is pervasive in the grammar of many of the languages,
because it connects with questions like types of predication (possessive,
existential), case-marking, active-stative type of language,
omnipredicativity, configurationality, and others.

Contributions, which focus whether on a single language or on large amounts
of different language data, aim to freshen our perception of formerly known
data as well as to bring new data into current discussion.

Languages studied include Tupinamba, Guarani, Chiriguano, Kamayura,
Tapirape, Mbya, Emerillon, and Karitiana, a Tupi but non Tupi-Guarani language.
