Historical information: This Collection represents fieldwork undertaken by students of the Berkeley Field Methods class on South Bolivian Quechua (SBQ) in the 2016-2017 academic year. The course was taught by Professor Lev Michael, and Efrain Escobar (of Cochabamba, Bolivia) was the language consultant. All other contributors listed were students in the class. Elicitation was carried out primarily following methodology described in Matthewson (2004), including translation tasks between SBQ, Spanish, and English, as well as judgments of the grammaticality and semantic felicity of sentences of SBQ in given contexts. Some contexts were provided through oral description in English and Spanish, while others were provided through pictures (including the Topological Relations Picture Series, Bowerman & Pederson 1994) and actions performed by the fieldworker. Elicitation occurred in 30- to 60-minute sessions. More information about the project can be found in Item 2016-13.279 "Collection Guide".
Scope and content: Audio recordings of elicitation sessions, as well as accompanying notes. The content includes lexical and grammatical elicitation as well as texts. Some texts are transcribed in ELAN, and ELAN transcriptions are included in the Collection.
