Description
The RBLA journal aims to be a fruitful forum for scholarly studies on the languages and cultures of native peoples of the Americas, with special focus on the South American continent. Its main concerns are articles, research reports, field reports, bibliographical essays, and reviews of linguistic studies, highlighting the interface between language and culture in descriptive or historical perspectives. It publishes studies on a variety of aspects of the native languages and cultures, among which lexicon, phonology, grammar, semantic systems and fields, cultural classifications of plants and animals, ethnogeography, ethnohistory, onomastics, kinship, linguistic and cultural prehistory, human genetics, language contact, language obsolescence and language revitalization processes, text and discourse analyses, verbal arts, ritual language, and linguistic expressions of gender distinctions.
