Sarave Indian Language (Saraveca)

Saraveca is an extinct Arawakan language of South America, once spoken in Bolivia and Brazil. It was closely related to the still-living Paresi language. "Sarave" is actually the name of the people, and "Saraveca" means "Sarave language," but since the language is no longer spoken it has become common to hear the redundant phrase "Saraveca language."
