Description:Vicente Garcia and Francisco Hernandez talking in La Laguna
The general aim of the MDP0276 project is to document and describe three varieties of Pesh in eight villages, the most northern Chibchan language, and the only one spoken in Honduras. Pesh is classified as an isolate in the Chibchan family; it is the sole language that does not belong to Core Chibchan. Pesh is endangered: it has roughly 500 speakers, of whom 80% are more than 50 years old. Pesh is little described. The project has filled a gap, since no documentation or complete description has been carried out in the past. Various genres have been documented, in particular such endangered speech practices as prayers and ceremonial speech, and narratives related to traditional cooking and medicine. More than 30 hours have been recorded.
