Akuriyo is a Carib language of South America, spoken today by only a handful of elders in Suriname. Most Akuriyo people have switched to the neighboring language Trio. Akuriyo is an agglutinative language with complex verb morphology. Alternate spellings of their tribal name include Akurio, Akuri, Akurijo, Akuliyo, Akulio, Akoerio, Akuriyó, Akuriyana, and Akuria. Akuriyo bands include the Wama (also known as the Wayarikule, Wayaricuri, Wayarikure, Wayacule, Wayakule, Wayarikoele, Irakule, Oyaricoule, or Oyaricoulet,) the Triometesen (also spelled Triometesem or Tiriyometesem), the Turaekare, and the Akuriekare.
