Description:

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