Summary of deposit
This project will undertake the documentation and syntactic description of Chocholtec, an endangered Otomanguean language spoken in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The last reliable statistics (2005) counted 524 speakers in four neighbouring villages; however, this number could arguably be adjusted downwards during fieldwork. As a preliminary stage to an extensive study of Chocholtec, the project will lay the fieldwork and produce a first annotated documentary corpus in audio and video and an ethnobiological vocabulary. All data will be made available to the community. Secondary goals will be to revise and complete the grammar compiled by Veerman-Leichsenring (2000).
