Here's the latest from the California Language Archive:

  • Tessa Scott, Lucrecia Carrillo, and Henry Sales have accessioned a new collection, Documentary Materials on Mam, a Mayan language of Guatemala, Mexico, and the Bay Area. The collection consists of audio recordings of lexical and grammatical elicitation, subtitled video recordings of narrative texts (with the assistance of Kenneth Gallanosa), typed field notes, and PDF scans of handwritten field notes. It spans multiple varieties of Mam, as spoken in the following towns in Guatemala: San Antonio Ixchiguán, San Ildefonso Ixtahuacán, San Juan Atitán (majority), San Rafael Petzal, and San Sebastián Huehuetenango.
