The preparation of language description tools for Wichí (an indigenous language of South America spoken in Argentina and Bolivia) with focus on the undocumented Central Pilcomayo dialect.

The goal of this project is the documentation of Wichí, an indigenous language of South America spoken in Argentina and Bolivia. The project would produce a dictionary, a reference grammar, and a collection of morphologically analyzed and translated texts for Central Pilcomayo Wichí. It would also establish the range of variation across the very divergent Wichí dialects and produce other online resources for scholarly and educational activities.
