This proposes to make the phonological description of the Deni indigenous language, whose communities are located on tributaries of the Juruá and Purus, Amazonas, with an estimated population of 1,254 people. The objectives of this research are: a-) to describe the phonology of the Deni language b-) serve as input to future research in language, in order that a detailed phonological research can contribute positively to further research, c-) strengthen the interest of preservation of the language by the speakers;-d) contribute to the scientific knowledge of the language family Arawá, since there are not many studies on these languages. The description will be anchored in the Pike's (1947) techniques to phonemes identification; for the description of syllabic patterns will be used to postulate the non-linear phonology, phonology autossegmental specifically Goldsmith's (1990) proposed; the stress will be studied from the Hayes' (1995) perspective of the metrical theory; the morphophonological process will be analyzed.
