Kokama: Trilingual Dictionary, Pedagogical Grammar, and Text Corpus with Video Files

The aim of the proposed project is to complete ongoing work to document Kokama, a highly endangered language of the Peruvian Amazon. The PI will produce (i) a Kokama-Spanish-English dictionary, (ii) a pedagogical grammar, and (iii) a corpus of fully transcribed, glossed, and translated video recordings. Given the highly endangered status of Kokama, previous efforts to document the language have focused on the collection of primary data, the grammatical description of the language, as well as on the production of a few resources to support revitalization initiatives put forward by the language community. This project, which is the final component of the PI's long-term plan to document the language, will take advantage of current favorable conditions: community motivation, trained native speakers, a significant amount of extant data, and an efficient workflow.
