Pokangá (pok-pok) = 8a (Moribund).

E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24 has an entry for Pokangá [pok] as an Eastern Tucanoan language of the Upper Tiquié river in northwest Brazil. The entry contains the comment that “The people claim to speak Waimaha (Northern Barasano) [bao]”. The Waimaha [bao] entry indeed has the Upper Tiquié river included in the list of locations. This area has been survey many times and there is no other Tucano language spoken there ( Jackson, Jean E. 1983 , Giacone, Antônio 1949 , Theodor Koch-Grünberg 1912, 1913, 1914, 1914, 1915-1916, 1915-1916 ) except Tucano [tuo] and Waimaha [bao] (also known as Bará), and the non-Tucano languages of the hunting-gathering peoples living between the larger rivers also have entries. The Pokangá [pok] entry is spurious, and should be merged with the Waimaha [bao] entry as the information in both already indicates. See also: Tucano [tuo], Waimaha [bao].
