• Large gramatical units and the space-time setting in Maxakalí. Atas do Simpósio sobre a Biota Amazônica, vol. 2 (Antropologia), Rio de Janeiro 1967, pp. 195-199.

Nas palavras do autor: "The analysis of Maxakalí requires the description of a grammatical unit larger than sentence. This unit, for convenience, is called a paragraph … The paragraph was postulated in order to solve several problems that remained after the Maxakalí had been analysed. These problems involved the use of motion verbs, the use of conjunctions, and the distribution of simple time phrases vs. time phrases included in clauses. Oddly enough, all of the problems seemed to refer to time or space. We hypotethized that temporals and locationals might be defining features of paragraphs" (p. 195).
