Taruma (6969-tdm) = Critically Endangered (80 percent certain, based on the evidence available)

Taruma, an isolated language of the Brazil/Guyana borderlands, is missing from E16/E17/E18. While often presumed extinct, there are three Taruma left, living among the Wapishana ( Eithne B. Carlin 2006: 315 ). One of the three is fluent enough to produce coherent texts in Taruma while the other two have a much weaker knowledge of the language (p.c. Sergio Meira 2015).
