Deposit contents
This project will document and describe three varieties of Pesh, the most northern Chibchan language spoken in Honduras, with around 300 speakers. Pech is a highly endangered language, as young people do not speak it. The outcome will be a digital corpus of 30 hours of audio and video recordings, transcribed and translated into Spanish, of which 15 hours will be provided with an interlinear gloss. Various genres will be documented, in particular endangered speech practices including prayers and ceremonial speech, and narratives related to traditional cooking and medicine. Two volumes will be produced: a descriptive grammar and a collection of transcribed traditional texts accompanied by audio, video and photography.
