This volume includes grammatical descriptions of Wai Wai, Warekena,
a comparative survey of morphosyntactic features of the Tupi-Guarani
languages, and a paper on interclausal reference phenomena in
The four volumes of this handbook are devoted to studies of syntactic,
morphological and phonological characteristics of the languages of
Amazonia, many of which have never been described fully in the
available literature, and most of which are little known to the
general linguistic community.
