Summary of deposit
GIZAC is a language documentation project in Bolivia, working with endangered Gwarayu (gyr) and almost extinct Guarasuñée (psm), more widely known as Pauserna. Both languages belong to the Tupi-Guarani family. Gwarayu has approximately 5,000 speakers of varying competence, and of Guarasuñée there are only a few speakers left. The two hitherto under-investigated languages are found in a linguistic contact region and geographical intermediate zone between Bolivian Amazonia and Chaco. GIZAC aims at compiling a large multi-purpose corpus that allows for scientific research on the two languages as well as for revitalisation activities.
