Machinere is an Arawakan language of South America,
spoken by 400 people in Brazil and Bolivia. The Machinere language is frequently
confused with the Mashco Piro and Yine languages, because members of all three
groups are generically referred to as "Piro." Machinere is a polysynthetic language with predominantly SOV word order.
Other names that have been used for the Machinere Indians and their language include
Machineri, Maxineri, Manchinere, Manchineri, Manitenere, and Maniteneri.
