The Warihio language is a member of the Uto-Aztecan family. The language consists of two dialects: the Upland Warihio in the mountains of Chihuahua and the River Warihio along the Mayo River in Sonora, Mexico. With the various Tarahumara dialects, and Yaqui and Mayo languages, it makes up the Taracahitic sub-group of the Sonoran branch of the Uto-Aztecan family of languages. All of the field and supporting data for this work comes from the River dialect. This work deals with all of the major linguistic aspects of the River Warihio language, including a brief description of its phonology, major and minor word classes, noun phrase, relative clauses, simple sentence structure, negation, voice, and complex sentences structure. Likewise, a short comparative section within Uto-Aztecan languages of some relevant aspects of the Warihio grammar. Also included is a basic Warihio-English-Spanish dictionary and several analyzed texts. These appendixes provide natural language data for study of areas not covered in detail here.
