The Andean foothills and adjacent Amazonian fringe


Van Gijn, Rik (2014). The Andean foothills and adjacent Amazonian fringe. In: O'Connor, Loretta; Muysken, Pieter. The Native Languages of South America. Origins, Development, Typology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 102-125.

Abstract

This chapter on the distribution of Andean and Amazonian features in the upper Amazon area shows that the transition from the Andean to the Amazonian area is gradual and complex. This is consistent with the intricate history of contact between the different ethnic groups of the area, and it presents a strong argument for connecting the research traditions associated with these areas. Morphosyntactic influence generally seems to represent older contact situations than phonological influence.
