Arawack Version

Arawack Version The people to whom this language is vernacular inhabit the sea-shores and the banks of rivers in British Guiana, in Surinam, or Dutch Guiana, and in the province of Venezuela. The people of Dutch Guiana were supplied by the American Bible Society with the Acts in their own vernacular in 1851 from a MS. in their possession, but concerning which we have no further information. For linguistic purposes, see Quandt, Arowakische Gramnatik, in Schomburgk, Reise in Britisch-Guayana (184048); Brinton, The Arawak Language of Guiana, in Trans. Amer. Phil. Society (Philadelphia, new series, 1871), 14:427 sq. (B. P.)
