Borrowing of a Cariban number marker into three Tupi-Guarani languages
Morphologies in Contact
This paper discusses the process of borrowing of a Cariban number marker *komo by three Tupi-Guarani languages (Wayampi, Emerillon and Zo'é). This process had already been brought to light before (Jensen 1979: 16) and is uncontroversial.
