The goal of this project is to document all five dialects of the southern variety of Yauyos, an extremely endangered Quechuan language. The need for documentation is urgent: with perhaps 1,700 speakers and rememberers, the language is nearly extinct and the materials available on and in the language are extremely limited, consisting, essentially, only of what the applicant has been able to collect to date. Specifically, this project will conduct fieldwork to record four of the five dialects in audio and video format; prepare a database of annotated recordings of the four dialects; and prepare a comparative lexicon and sketch grammar of all five dialects.
