Abstract

This article applies the comparative method to show that there is a genetic relationship between the Colombian and Ecuadorian indigenous languages Guambiano, Totoró, Awa Pit (Cuaiquer), Cha'palaachi (Cayapa), and Tsafiqui (Colorado). These five languages form the Barbacoan group. This family does not contain Paez, although that language is often grouped with (some of) the Barbacoan languages. In addition, Moore's (1962) analysis of the South Barbacoan languages (Cha'palaachi and Tsafiqui) is reexamined, and it is shown that by correcting his data, Proto-South Barbacoan can be reconstructed without a palatal series of consonants.
