Culina Indian Language (Kulina, Kurina, Corina)

Culina is a Arauan language of South America. It is often called Kulina Madihá to distinguish it from the unrelated language Kulina Pano, which was a Panoan language. Culina is spoken by around 2500 people in Brazil and Peru. Culina is very similar to the Deni language, and some linguists consider the two to be dialects of a single language. Both Culina and Deni have SOV word order.
