Three speakers, four dialects: Documenting variation in an endangered Amazonian language
|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.|
