The lost language of the Urus of Bolivia. A grammatical description of the language as documented between 1894 and 1952
Indigenous Languages of Latin America (ILLA), vol 7
This book is the first comprehensive grammatical description of Uchumataqu,
the lost language of the Uru of Lake Titicaca in north-western Bolivia. The

Some of the most ample studies even remained unpublished.
This book is aimed at linguists from all disciplines but is of equal
interest to anthropologists, Americanists, historical linguists,
typologists, and linguists with a special interest in Andean studies.
