comment = E16/E17/E18/E19 has an entry Tapeba [tbb] representing people of Ceará state in
Brazil with indigenous background and a common identity. However, the common
identity is recently formed and does not correspond to a past or present
language, as the ancestors of the present Tapeba spoke languages such as Kariri,
Tremembe and likely others (**hh:h:Barretto:Tapebas**, **hh:h:Studart:Ceara**)
which either have entries of their own or are too poorly known to show if they
were separate languages. Since E16/E17/E18/E19 is a catalogue of languages,
a Tapeba [tbb] entry is spurious.
