A Carib Grammar and Dictionary
The Carib language, sometimes called Galibi or True Carib, is spoken by some 7000 people living in Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and Brazil. Henk Courtz's book, originally a Leiden University Ph.D. dissertation, contains a detailed description of Carib grammar and the most extensive inventory of Carib lexemes and affixes so far. The material is of interest to scholars in the fields of linguistic typology, comparative Cariban linguistics, Carib dialects, and to anyone who is curious to know more about the Carib language of South-America. Please visit the publisher's website (www.MagoriaBooks.com) for excerpts and errata.
