Abstract:

"The Indigenous Languages of South America: A Comprehensive Guide" is athorough guide to the indigenous languages of this part of the world. With morethan a third of the linguistic diversity of the world (in terms of language familiesand isolates), South American languages contribute new findings in most areasof linguistics. Though formerly one of the linguistically least known areas of theworld, extensive descriptive and historical linguistic research in recent yearshas expanded knowledge greatly. These advances are represented in thisvolume in indepth treatments by the foremost scholars in the field, with chapterson the history of investigation, language classification, language endangerment,language contact, typology, phonology and phonetics, and on major languagefamilies and regions of South America.
