Series Title: Brill's Studies in the Indigenous Languages of the Americas
Description:

The contributors to this volume, an international group of leading specialists,
guide us through different aspects of the study of Amerindian languages and
societies that lie at the heart of the extensive and multi-facetted work of Willem
Adelaar, the forerunning specialist in Native American studies of Meso and
South America, and Professor of Amerindian Studies at Leiden University. The
contributors focus on three larger regions, the Andes, Amazonia, Meso-America
and the Circum-Caribbean region, giving us a state of the art overview of current
linguistic and archaeological research trends that illuminate the dynamicity and
historicity of the Americas, in migratory movements, contact situations,
grouping and re-grouping of identities and the linguistic results thereof. This book
is a must-have for all scholars of the American continent.
