Does anyone know how reliable the dialects listed by Carrada are? I don't know where he got his information, but I have yet to come across it in any other texts. Additionally, he lists Eyeri has a dialect of Tiano spoken in Puerto Rico, but Eyeri is actually a seperate language altogether. I don't believe these dialects are reliable. I've listed instead the dialects given by Bartolomé de Las Casas (described in the book, "Languages of the Pre-Colomban Antilles"). I feel that this is a much more credible. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jacr88 (talk • contribs) 08:47, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
I've read that "mangrove" comes from Guarani rather than Taino, but nobody really knows the etymology. Also, "cannibal" is from the name Carib; it's somewhat misleading to say that it's borrowed from Taino.--188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:06, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
There were many ancestors of the Taino from Indonesia and Brazil.
As a description of the Taíno language, this sentence, recently inserted by Gibbydog416 (Talk), is absurd. But it seems to be about the people, in which case it's not only absurd but misplaced. Deleted. --Thnidu (talk) 03:40, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
