This book is a detailed high-quality descriptive grammar of the endangered Cavinena language (less than speakers), spoken in the Amazonian rainforest of Lowland Bolivia, an area where the indigenous languages are virtually unknown.

Among these is an unusual case marking system in which grammatical marking is motivated by semantic and pragmatic factors, and a rich verbal morphology that produces elaborate sequences of agglutinative suffixes.The book concludes with excerpts from three texts (–22), followed by indices of subjects, languages, and names.
