Macro-Ge Language Family (Macro-Je)



Macro-Ge languages are primarily spoken in the rainforests of Brazil and Bolivia. Some linguists have linked them with the Panoan, Tupian, and/or Cariban language families, resulting in a larger combined stock called "Ge-Pano-Carib" or "Ge-Tupi-Carib." These theories are not accepted by everyone, however.
