Description:This recording is from the community of Santa Anita nearby to Oyacoto. During the initial discussion the couple mention that the community was not always called Santa Anita but used to be called Tushumbi, which is a pre-Quechuan Barbacoan name. The couple continues narrating accounts of the local community history. Water was a difficult to locate commodity in those time, and people would go on difficult trips to the ravines to bring back containers of water. A few traditional festivals are described, with drinks like chicha. This area reduces final diphthongs “chay” to “chi,” “tukuy” to “tuki” etc., which is characteristic of the whole central area of the highlands, but not the north or far south.
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.
