The Borôroan languages of Brazil are Borôro and the extinct Umotína and Otuke. They form part of the Macro-Jê proposal.

Languages[edit]

See Otuke for various additional varieties which may have been dialects of it; there are other recorded groups that may have spoken languages or dialects closer to Bororo, such as Aravirá, but nothing is directly known of their language.
