I've heard of "a Brazilian language" with 10 phonemes, but the source gave no name or phonemic inventory. ---> I think I mentioned Waorani before. It is spoken in Ecuador. It has eight consonants: p, t, k, b, d, g, w, y, and ten vowels: i, e, ae, a, o + nasal variants In some articles the nasal vowels are not distinguished, thus saying there are only 13 phonemes. Rob
