Examples of "catuquina"
Catuquinarú is an extinct and unclassified language of Brazil, preserved in a few words collected by a Dr Bach and published in Church (1898). The name is a common derivative of "Catuquina", and Loukotka includes it among the Tupi languages, describing the people as Tupinized Catuquina. However, the little preserved vocabulary does not resemble that of the Tupi languages, Catuquinan languages, or Panoan languages (vd. Panoan Catuquina).
The two principal varieties, Kanamari (Canamarí) and Katukina (Catuquina), are mutually intelligible, and have both been confused with neighboring languages with the same or similar names.
Mason (1950) gives "Pidá-Dyapá" and "Kutiá-Dyapá" as dialects of Catukina, and "Cadekili-Dyapá" and "Wadyo-Paraniñ-Dyapá" (Kairara) as dialects of Tawari, corresponding to Loukotka's names Kadekili-dyapa and Kayarára. He adds "Catukino" and a "miscellaneous" list of "Amena-Dyapá, Cana-Dyapá, Hon-Dyapá" (which Loukotka identifies with Parawa), "Marö-Dyapá, Ururu-Dyapá," and "Wiri-Dyapá" (which Loukotka identifies with Catuquina).
A large number of Katukinan dialects have gone extinct. Loukotka (1968) illustrates data from "Catuquina" (Wiri-dyapá, of the Jutaí River), "Canamari, Parawa" (Hon-dyapa), "Bendiapa," and "Catauxi" (Catosé, Hewadie, Katawishi, Quatausi). Canamari, Parawa, and Bendiapa (Beñ-Dyapá) may constitute a single language, as may "Tucundiapa" (Mangeroma, Tucano Dyapa). He also notes a "Tawari" (Tauaré, Kadekili-dyapa, Kayarára), and a "Buruá" (Burue, Buruhe), of which nothing has been recorded.
