Study of Discourse from Folk Literature in Aboriginal Languages from Columbia, Panama and Ecuador

To prepare materials for study of discourse in folk literatures in aboriginal languages of Columbia, Panama and Ecuador. The study of discourse and of the notional/cognitive categories which underlie discourse is a growing edge of contemporary linguistics -- which is no longer a narrow specialty but a discipline exploring basic questions concerning human nature. Language study will include languages of the world. This project which will take place in Lomalinda, Columbia^ will include people who have a unique experience of long-term exposure to out-of-the-way languages.
