Written By: Cristina Martins Fargetti
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Native American Linguistics 58
Description:

Esta tese apresenta um estudo fonológico e morfossintático da língua juruna
(família juruna, tronco tupi), falada pelo povo juruna (aproximadamente
241pessoas) que vive no Parque Indígena Xingu, Mato Grosso. No Capítulo I,
um estudo fonológico, são apresentados os fonemas segmentais da língua, com
exemplificação de contrastes, distribuição complementar e variação "livre";
também são apresentadas análise do acento via teoria métrica (Hayes, 1995),
análise da nasalidade, via geometria de traços. No Capítulo II, Classes de
palavras, são apresentados os critérios para definir as classes de palavras
da língua, distinguindo-as em abertas (nome, verbo, advérbio) e fechadas
(posposição, pronome, clítico e partícula). No Capítulo III,
Subconstituintes da sentença, são apresentados os fenômenos relacionados
aos subconstituintes da sentença: modificadores de
nomes, ordem dentro do SN, categorias de modo e aspecto, reduplicação
(processos distintos de infixação e sufixação), causativos, reflexivo,
recíproco e negação. No Capítulo IV, Tipos de sentenças, são apresentados
os tipos de sentença na língua: Simples -declarativa, interrogativa e
imperativa; e Complexas - coordenadas e subordinadas.
No Capítulo V ,Conclusão, são apresentadas considerações sobre os
resultados deste trabalho. Finalmente, no Apêndice são apresentados três
textos em juruna, com as devidas glosas , com o objetivo de proporcionar ao
leitor a oportunidade de conhecer a língua em uso nas situações de diálogo,
narração sobre uma festa e narração de mito. Também no Apêndice há um
vocabulário básico da língua, organizado com o mesmo objetivo de servir a
uma comparação posterior com outras línguas e um conjunto de fotos de
membros da comunidade juruna.

This thesis presents a phonological and morphosyntatic study of Juruna
language (Juruna family, Tupi stock) spoken by Juruna people (approximately
200 persons) who live in Parque Indígena Xingu (Xingu Indigenous Park),
Mato Grosso state, Brazil. In Chapter I, a phonological study, the
segmental phonemes are presented, with contrasts exemplification,
complementary distribution and "free" variation; an analysis of stress by
Metrical Theory (Hayes, 1995), and an analysis of nasality by geometry of
features are presented. In Chapter II, Words Classes, is presented the
criteria to define the language word classes, distinguishing them in open
(noun, verb, adverb) and closed (posposition, pronoun, clitic and
particles). In Chapter III, Sentence Subconstituents, phenomena related to
the sentence subconstituents are presented: noun modifiers, order inside
the NP, categories of mood and aspect, reduplication (distinct processes of
infixation and suffixation), causatives, reflexive, reciprocal and
negation. In Chapter IV, Sentences Types, the language sentence types are
presented: Simple - declarative, interrogative and imperative - and Complex
- coordinated and subordinated. In Chapter V are presented considerations
about the results of this work. Finally, in the Appendix, three texts in
Juruna are presented with the proper glosses, so as to provide the reader
the opportunity of knowing a language in use in situations of dialogue,
narrative about a party and a myth narrative. Also in the Appendix, there
is a basic language vocabulary, organized so as to also serve to a
posterior comparison to other languages, and there are photos of Juruna people.
