Description:Audio in Tinigua. Sixto talks about his last wife, Isabel, and how they ended up separating. Isabel went off to look for him downriver, but left in a romance with her son in law.
Audio en Tinigua. Sixto habla sobre su última esposa, Isabel, y cómo y por qué se separaron. Isabel había bajado por el río, en una balsa, para buscar a Sixto (quien se había ido para el Guaviare a buscar a su hijo Enrique. En aquella época Enrique estaba estudiando en el colegio, tendría al rededor de unos 13 años). Isabel bajaba en una balsa con su yerno, un hombre de apellido Polanía. Isabel se perdió con su yerno, y más tarde un vecino de la región encontraría a Isabel y a Polanía teniendo un romance en medio del monte. Le contaron a Sixto y este evento causaría la separación entre Sixto e Isabel.
Tinigua [ISO 639-3:tit] is the last surviving member of an independent South American Tiniguan family whose other (two?) members have disappeared without substantial documentation; with only one remaining speaker, it is now critically endangered. Additionally, the language is seriously underdocumented and underdescribed. This project aims to provide a linguistic documentation of Tinigua through work with Sixto Muñoz, its last remaining speaker. The expected outcomes of this project are a transcribed, translated and annotated audio-visual corpus of the language, a grammatical description, and a lexicon. Additionally, I aim to gather further historical and cultural data on the Tiniguan culture.
Speaker of Tinigua. Last speaker known of the language.
Berenice is Sixto's granddaughter. She has lived with Sixto since she was around 13 years old. She then moved on to live with a husband but still nearby Sixto's house. Nowdays she is planning to move back to Barrancón, in Guaviare, to live with her family.
