Example text

Nothing could be much clearer. Las Casas’s “second language,” as we shall see, is identi¤ed in other contexts as Ciguayo. In his Apologética Historia (1909: Chap. 120) Las Casas adds the following about the Hispaniolan languages and about Ramón Pané: Fray Ramón [Pané] worked as much as he could to learn the three languages that there were on this island, but he only knew that of a small province which, as we have said, was called Lower Macorís, and that one not perfectly. Of the universal language he knew only a little, like the rest of us, although more than most, since no priest, brother, nor lay person knew any of them perfectly except possibly a priest from Palos or Moguer, named Cristóbal Rodríguez, and I think even he didn’t know everything about the common language.

This particular lexical form, by rights, should not be found in Taíno, for as duhu it is the Warao word for ‘sit, stool,’ and there is no phonologically similar base in any Arawakan language with that meaning, nor can we convincingly derive duho from some other phonologically similar Arawakan form with the same meaning by rules of regular sound correspondence. The general Arawakan, Northern Maipuran base for ‘sit’ is -la, as in Lokono bálatjn, Goajiro áikkalaa (Taylor 1977:132, 135). While Classic Taíno had an l phoneme, it occurred only form-¤nally.

The distribution of these characteristics coincides with ethnic Macorís territory (Veloz Maggiolo, Ortega, and Caba Fuentes 1981). , when Meillacan pottery ¤rst appears. They base their hypothesis on the presence of artifactual and other cultural traits shared by Meillacan-Macorís culture with, particularly, the Mabaruma phase of the Akawabi archaeological complex of the Guianas (Veloz Maggiolo, Ortega, and Caba Fuentes 1981:372–397; Evans and Meggers 1960). While the present authors are not personally convinced on archaeological grounds alone that such a migration was necessary to account for the Meillacan-Macorís peculiarities, the single anomalous form baeza raises serious questions concerning the overall input sources to Macorís culture, and we are convinced that the Veloz Maggiolo–Ortega–Caba Fuentes hypothesis is worthy of considerable further testing.
