Historical information: These recordings were produced by students of the field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley between January and March 1979. The course, taught by Professor Leanne Hinton, first began with a speaker of Ayacucho Quechua, Laura Runi (2015-02.001), but transitioned to a speaker of Cochabamba Quechua, Ditri Daza (all remaining file bundles excepting 2015-02.009). All other listed contributors were students in the class.
Scope and content: This collection consists of 12 digitized audio recordings focusing largely on the recitation of basic words and phrases, as well as some more complex sentences. It also includes dialogic and poetic texts.
