One of these languages was the highly endangered and practically undocumented Koaiá language isolate, spoken in a mixed community in the state of Rondônia, Brazil, together with Aikaná or Huari (unclassified), and Latundê (Nambikwaran). Subsequently, Koaiá (now renamed Kwaza), a language of c. 25 speakers, most of whom are also fluent in Aikaná and Portuguese, became the subject of a project resulting in one of the most detailed linguistic descriptions of any South American language to date (van der Voort 2004).

They are the increased interest for language typology and the rise of the endangered languages movement. The search for language types benefits from an ample display of data, in which all possible features of language must be represented, including the most exotic ones (see Campbell, this volume). It stimulates a focused attention on language diversity, rather than on efforts to find a common denominator valid for all languages, as had been the concern of earlier linguistic currents. The expansion of typological research depends on the kind of new data that can only be obtained in the field or in archives from poorly documented languages representing unfamiliar language types.
