Item Summary

Title: Three speakers, four dialects: Documenting variation in an endangered Amazonian language
Issue Date: 12 Mar 2015
Description: While endangered-language speech communities can display extensive inter-speaker variation, language documentation projects rarely involve serious research on variation. This talk addresses obstacles to and strategies for documenting variation in endangered languages, taking the author’s recent documentary- sociolinguistic work on Máíhiki, a severely endangered language of northwestern Amazonia, as a case study.
