The Andean and Pacific regions of South America are home to a remarkable
variety of languages and language families, with a range of typological
differences. Documenting the indigenous languages of this region, as well
as of adjacent areas, Willem Andelaar and Pieter Muysken provide historical
as well as contemporary information about the languages of the Andes.
Illustrated with detailed grammatical sketches, their book will be a
valuable resource for students and scholars of linguistics and anthropology.
