Elisa Loncon’s thesis is written in Spanish and focuses on the  morphology and morphosyntax of Mapudungun, the main surviving indigenous language of Chile, also known as the Mapuche language. The creative potential of this historically important language, which has suffered an important decline in recent decades, is currently being revalorised and developed in order to facilitate its use in a modern, changing society.
