"Joaquiniano" is an alternate name for the Baure language of Bolivia.
It refers specifically to the dialect of the Baure language once spoken in the village of San Joaquin Fuente,
which is where the name Joaquiniano comes from. Some linguists have suggested Joaquiniano
may be different enough from Baure to be considered a separate language. Since Joaquiniano is no longer
spoken today, and few records of the language remain, it is difficult to conclusively answer that question.
