    • Collection number: 2017-03

    • Historical information: This project represents fieldwork undertaken by Julia Nee in the summer of 2017, under a Tinker Grand for Field Research in Latin America, and builds upon previous work in the Berkeley Field Methods class on South Bolivian Quechua (SBQ) in the 2016-2017 academic year. South Bolivian Quechua (quh) is reported by Ethnologue as having 1,615,120 speakers spanning Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile as of 2014. This population, however, includes speakers of a number of varieties beyond the Cochabamba variety documented in this collection. Because of the language's co-official status in Bolivia, it enjoys a relatively high level of prestige. It is used (at least nominally) in public schools and has a developing literary tradition. The recordings and notes in this collection were collected with Quechua teacher and linguist Fridda Ramos in May and June 2017 in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Elicitation was carried out primarily following methodology described in Matthewson (2004), including translation tasks between SBQ and Spanish as well as judgments of the semantic felicity of sentences of SBQ in given contexts. Some of these contexts were provided through oral description in Spanish, while others were provided through pictures (including the Topological Relations Picture Series, Bowerman & Pederson 1994), actions performed by the fieldworker, or video clips (including ECOM clips, Bohnemeyer & Caelen 1999). Similarly, the consultant was asked to provide sentences describing these pictures, actions, and videos in SBQ. Elicitation occurred in 90 minute sessions. The results of this work are presented in Julia Nee's first qualifying paper for the PhD program in Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, titled "The Syntax and Semantics of Path in South Bolivian Quechua: A Nanosyntactic Account".

We acknowledge with respect the Ohlone people on whose traditional, ancestral, and unceded land we work and whose historical relationships with that land continue to this day.
