MURILLO MIRANDA, José Manuel. THE SIMPLE CLAUSE IN NGÄBÉRE. Forma funcion, Santaf, de Bogot, D.C. [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.1, pp. 39-69. ISSN 0120-338X.
This paper makes a preliminary description of the most important features of simple clause in the variant of the Ngäbére language (Guaymí) spoken in the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Although not a proper comparative study, it does make some reference to the characteristics of the simple clause in Panamanian Ngäbére, on which there is a bit more of study.
Keywords : Chibchan languages; Costa Rica's indigenous languages; simple clause; grammatical relations; syntax.
