Here's the latest from the California Language Archive:
- We've accessioned a small new collection of audio and video recordings from Nicholas Evans's course "Grammar and Social Cognition" at the LSA Linguistic Institute held at Berkeley in 2009. With the assistance of Simeon Floyd, the class collaborated with three speakers of Imbabura Kichwa (Quechuan; Ecuador) -- Gladys, Augusto Oyagata, and Mariana Chuquín -- who collaborated as consultants with the graduate field methods class the following year.
- We've collaborated with the Mineral King Preservation Society and a team of cultural advisors in their curation of a new exhibit "Native Voices" at the Three Rivers Historical Museum in Three Rivers, California. The exhibit, which debuts Saturday, features an audiovisual panel, pictured here courtesy of Lisa Monteiro, with a recording of Cecile Silva speaking in Wukchumni (Yokutsan; California). The recording was made in 1973 by Geoffrey Gamble (PhD 1975).
