Tupi Language
OLD TUPI or CLASSICAL TUPI is an extinct Tupian language which was spoken by the native Tupi people of Brazil , mostly those who lived close to the sea. It belongs to the Tupi–Guarani language family, and has a written history spanning the 16th, 17th, and early 18th centuries. In the early colonial period, Tupi was used as a _lingua franca _ throughout Brazil by Europeans and Amerindians , and had literary usage, but it was later suppressed almost to extinction, leaving only one modern descendant with an appreciable number of speakers, Nheengatu . The names Old Tupi or classical Tupi are used for the language in English and by modern scholars (it is referred to as _tupi antigo_ in Portuguese ), but native speakers called it variously _ñeengatú_ "the good language", _ñeendyba_ "common language", _abáñeenga_ "human language", in Old Tupi, or _língua geral_ "general language", _língua geral amazônica_ "Amazonian general language", _LíNGUA BRASíLICA_ "Brazilian language", in Portuguese

List Of Sovereign States
This LIST OF SOVEREIGN STATES provides an overview of sovereign states around the world , with information on their status and recognition of their sovereignty . Membership within the United Nations
United Nations
system divides the 206 listed states into three categories: 193 member states , two observer states , and 11 other states. The _sovereignty dispute_ column indicates states whose sovereignty is undisputed (190 states) and states whose sovereignty is disputed (16 states, out of which there are 6 member states, 1 observer state and 9 other states). Compiling a list such as this can be a difficult and controversial process, as there is no definition that is binding on all the members of the community of nations concerning the criteria for statehood . For more information on the criteria used to determine the contents of this list, please see the _criteria for inclusion _ section below. The list is intended to include entities that have been recognized to have _de facto_ status as sovereign states, and inclusion should not be seen as an endorsement of any specific claim to statehood in legal terms

A capital is typically a city that physically encompasses the offices and meeting places of its respective government ; the status as capital is often designated by its law or constitution . In some jurisdictions , including several countries, the different branches of government are located in different settlements.
