Abstract: Kayabi language (Tupi-Guarani family) is, at first sight, a free word order language, since all kinds of word order are attested. Nevertheless, we show that the variation in the order of the sentence constituents obey certain restrictions, depending on, from among others, the verbal form involved. In declarative constructions, in which the verb is marked by person inflection, the order variation is less restrict than the constructions named narratives, which the verb is not marked by person inflection, and only SOV and OSV are allowed. Moreover, it also shows that kayabi has second position clitics and we discuss an analysis of second position clitics, in which to these clitics undergo syntactic movement, based on the gerative grammar theoretical framework.
