Abstract

[Extract] Boran and Witotoan are two language families spoken in northwest Amazonia, in the Caqueta, Putumayo, and Ampiyacu River Basins in southern Colombia and northern Peru. The Boran family consists of two languages, Bora (with its variety Miraiia) and Muinane (Echeverri and Seifart 2015). The Witotoan language family is divided into Ocaina, Nonuya, and Witoto. The language name 'Witoto' is a collective umbrella term encompassing four different ethnic groups which speak four mutually intelligible dialects-Murui (known also as Bue), Mika, Minika, and Nipode. In all likelihood, they form a dialect continuum (see Figure 19.1).1
