jeu. 03/10/2019 Documentation of endangered languages in Colombia.
The experience with Tinigua (isolate), and Cabiyarí (Arawak)
14h-16h
MSH, salle Berty Albrecht
Conférence de :
  • Katherine Bolaños (Instituto Caro y Cuervo, Colombia)
dans le cadre DTT : Atelier LED-TDR

In this talk we aim to present advances in the documentation of Tinigua and Cabiyarí. Two amazonian languages spoken in Colombia. We have undertaken the documentation of both these languages from an interdisciplinary perspective, combining the documentation and reconstruction of the historical memory of the ethnic groups and a functional linguistic description.

Tinigua is a language isolate spoken today by one last known speaker. The ethnic group once inhabited the plains of the Yarí, an area in the fringe of the Andean-amazonian region. Through the documentation of Tinigua, we have found sequels of a past history of contact between Tinigua and other amazonian and pre-andean groups which have left traces in the structure of the language, as well as in the cultural practices that Sixto Muñoz, the last speaker of the language, can still reconstruct.

The project on the documentation of Cabiyarí has just recently began. In this talk we will present our advances on the ethnographic and linguistic documentation of this Arawakan language, spoken today by about 35 people, inhabitants of the Apaporis area, in the Vaupés region of Northwest Amazonia. Eastern Colombia.
