Taken from the surviving contemporary documentary sources| Julian Granberry’s volume describes the grammar and lexicon for the extinct 17th-century Timucua language of Central and North Florida and traces the origins of the 17th-century Timucua speakers and their language. Originally privately published in 1987| with limited circulation| this is the only available publication on the Timucuan language. It provides full grammatical analysis and complete lexical data| and it synthesizes both linguistic and archaeological data in order to provide a coherent picture of the Timucua peoples. Granberry traces the probable historical origins of Timucua speakers to a central Amazonian homeland at approximately 2|500 B.C. and proposes that Timucua speakers were responsible for introducing ceramic wares into North America.
