Description:In the community of La Chimba Miguel and Cecilia, a couple from Otavalo, help to interview a local couple who speak a different dialect, the Cayambe area variety. The older couple uses interesting speech prosody. The participants are all sitting around a fire and attending to some cooking tasks while they talk. Towards the end of the recording they talk about distinctions in local dress styles, and about some pilgrimages they participate in. In Baños they mention the thermal spring “jambi yaku” when they do on Romeria in April. The couple also has been on the Romeria in Lajas in Colombia. This recording has low sound at the beginning but is corrected mid-recording.
Ecuadorian Highland Quichua is a distinct Quechuan language unique to the Ecuadorian Andes, unintelligible with any other language in the Quechuan family. It is currently undergoing rapid shift to Spanish in all regions where it is spoken, but the most extreme language shift is found in Province of Pichincha where in most indigenous communities the only speakers are of advanced age. This project continues an ongoing effort to document Ecuadorian Highland Quichua across multiple provinces. This phase of the project focuses on areas of high language endangerment in Pichincha Province and bordering areas of neighboring provinces. Participants from multiple communities collaborate in filming conversations and activities including spoken Quichua in order to create a register of linguistic diversity across different dialects and micro-varieties. The recordings are then transcribed and translated to Spanish by a team of native speaker researchers.
Sessions include conversation and activities, semi-structured in collaboration with participants.
