Abstract: In this comparative study I have decided to look at the switch-reference paradigm in three Panoan languages: indigenous languages spoken in Peru and Brazil. Reason for this is the increasing amount of moribund languages, especially in this fascinating and linguistically diverse region. I will compare the systems and research the distinction between converbs and switch-reference constructions.
