    • Language: Aymara
    • Dates: September 2014 to May 2015
    • Historical information: These materials were produced by students of the field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley between September 2014 and May 2015. The course was taught by Professor Lev Michael and the language consultant was Hector Zapana Almanza, a native speaker of the variety of Aymara spoken around Lake Titicaca in Peru. All other listed contributors were students in the course.
    • Scope and content: This collection consists of audio recordings and scanned copies of field notes that derive from elicitation sessions conducted during biweekly class meetings held throughout the course of the academic year. Some texts are included.

    • Language: CiShingini (asg)
    • Dates: 2015
    • Historical information: In the summer of 2015, UC Berkeley graduate students Nicholas Rolle and Geoff Bacon worked with the sizeable CiShingini population living in the city of Ilorin, Nigeria (living outside of their traditional villages). CiShingini (ISO 639-3: asg) is a Kainji language, part of the Benue-Congo family within the Niger-Congo phylum. The language is indigenously spoken in scattered villages throughout the middle Western regions of Nigeria, near Lake Kainji. CiShingini is also known as Agwara Kambari or simply Kambari. The language is situated between the two largest language areas in Nigeria, with the Hausa to the north and the Yoruba to the south. In our experience, CiShingini speakers are completely fluent in Hausa but as a whole do not speak any Yoruba, even if they are Christian. Use of English varies.
      Serious attempts to describe CiShingini have been undertaken previously by John and Janie Stark. It was the stated goal of our fieldwork to build on the materials they already collected in three primary domains: lexical and grammatical tone (which had very little description in previous publications), quantification, and syntax. This was mostly done through elicitation in order to control for all relevant variables. The contact language for recording sessions was English (not Hausa or Pidgin). Nicholas Rolle worked with the CiShingini for under a month, while Geoff Bacon worked with them for 1 1/2 months. Our main consultants whom we worked with were Ishaya Musa, Mark Sunday, Joshua Zaure, and Seth Ango Liatu, all first language speakers of CiShingini who would exclusively use CiShingini in daily communication.
      We would like to thank these consultants for sharing their language, and acknowledge funding from a Rocca Pre-dissertation Fellowship from the Center for African Studies at UC Berkeley.
