Carutana-Baniwa (Karutana-Baniwa)

"Carutana-Baniwa" (also Karutana-Baniwa and Karutiana-Baniva) are names used by linguists to refer to the Baniwa and Carutana languages of Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia. These two languages are very closely related to each other, and are considered by many linguists to be dialects of a single language, which they consequently call Carutana-Baniwa.
