Kipeá (Quipea), or Kariri, is an extinct Karirian language of Brazil. It is sometimes considered a dialect of a single Kariri language. A short grammatical treatment is available.


The morphology of the Kipeá language is predominantly isolating and analytic, unusual for a language native to the Americas.[2]
