The objective of this thesis is to present a morphosyntactic description of
the Matis language (Panoan linguistic family), spoken by 262 persons that
live in the medium Ituí - northwest of Amazonian area.
The work has seven chapters. In the chapter one, we present the Matis
people situation and make considerations about some differences between
Matis and Matses languages, that were classified as the same language for
many time. In the chapter two to seven, we describe the phonological and
morphosyntactic aspects of the Matis language. As any other researchers
have not described this language, we described its morphology in a most
expanded way, explaining, thereby, the function of each morpheme into each
grammatical class. In addition, we comment general aspects of the syntax.
Finally, the study of the Matis language is the result of a research that
has as objectives to describe the phonological, morphological, and
syntactic aspects of this language. The work contributes to the knowledge
of this language, also to the whole Pano family languages, and to the
researches of Brazilian indigenous languages.
