Book Description Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. The Andean and Pacific regions of South America are home to a remarkable variety of languages and language families, with a range of typological differences.

Grouping the languages into different cultural spheres, it describes their characteristics in terms of language typology, language contact, and the social perspectives of present-day languages. The authors provide both historical and contemporary information, and illustrate the languages with detailed grammatical sketches.
