A Grammar of Pisaflores Tepehua, an endangered language of Mexico

Fieldwork and research to create a grammar of Pisaflores Tepehua, an endangered language of Mexico.

The goal of this project is to produce a comprehensive grammar and corpus of spontaneous speech of Pisaflores Tepehua (ISO: tpp), an endangered Totonac-Tepehua language spoken by a little over 2000 individuals in Pisaflores, Veracruz, and the nearby communities in Mexico. The grammar will be produced in both English and Spanish and will be made available both in print and online. It will be accompanied by a large corpus of audio and video recordings of naturally-occurring speech, as well as recordings of all sessions of elicitation and transcription. These materials will augment the existing collection of Pisaflores Tepehua language materials currently archived in the Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America (AILLA) at the University of Texas at Austin. The products of this project will supplement the dictionary of the language currently being completed by the PI and Frank Trechsel. The grammar, the existing dictionary, and the enlarged corpus, together with recordings of elicitation and transcription sessions, will document a broad sample of Pisaflores Tepehua discourse practices.
