Written By: C.H.de Goeje

Description:

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.
