There have been difficulties in the past with the inconsistent treatment of Baniwa [bwi], Curripaco [pkc], Karútana (an extinct dialect of Baniwa), and Ipeka (a dialect of Curripaco in the literature. Sources also confuse other languages that are also called "Baniwa" (spelling varies), and sources differ as to what are considered dialects and what are held to be separate languages.
