Matteson, Esther, Ed.
Ten grammars of indigenous Bolivian languages are presented in these two volumes of Bolivian Indian Grammars. The data were gathered and analyzed by members of the Bolivian Branch of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, which has carried on linguistic investigations in Bolivia since 1955. The grammars are presented in the tagmemic model of Pike with adaptation of the matrices and syntax paradigms developed by him, as well as the basic concepts which characterize the tagmemic model (described in the Introduction). Volume One contains the grammars of Baure, Ignaciano, Tacana, Eseejja, and Chacobo; Volume Two contains the grammars of Quechua, Guarani, Siriono, Otonama, and Movima. Short bibliographies follow each language section. (AMM)
