Guarayu Indian Language (Guarayo)

Guarayu is a Tupi-Guarani language of South America, spoken by around 5000 people in Bolivia. It has SOV word order.

Guarayu is not the same as the Guarani dialect known as "Guarayo," even though the two names are sometimes spelled the same. "Guarayu" just means "enemy" and was used to refer to several different groups of Bolivia and Paraguay.
