    • Collection number: 2018-07
    • Primary contributors: Celso Flores Romero (consultant), Sergio Méndez (consultant), Trinidad Oliveros Reyes (researcher), Alejandro de Ávila (researcher), Leanne Hinton (donor)
    • Languages: Coicoyan Mixtec (jmx), Mixtec
    • Dates: 1995-1996
    • Historical information: This Collection contains documentation of Mixtec conducted by Alejandro de Ávila in 1995 and 1996, as well as documentation of Mixtec conducted by Trinidad Oliveros in 1988 to 1990. This work was undertaken during the time that de Ávila was completing his dissertation on ethnobotany in Oaxaca at the University of California, Berkeley in the Anthropology Department. He completed an independent study with Professor Leanne Hinton in linguistics, during which time he worked with Sergio Méndez (from Tlacotepec) and Celso Flores Romero (from Coicoyán). According to K. Josserand's dissertation on Mixtec language history, the dialects spoken in Coicoyán and Tlacotepec belong to different subgroupings of the Mixteca Baja, although the two communities are not very distant from each other. Celso Flores is a speaker of the Coicoyán variety from Coicoyán de las Flores in the district of Juxtlahuaca in the state of Oaxaca in southern Mexico, where he still ives (as of 2018) and where he learned Mixtec as his first language. His mother and other members of his family do not speak Spanish, and Mixtec is still the dominant language in that area as of 2018. Coicoyán and the neighboring communities to the west in the municipalities of Metlatónoc and Cochoapa (Guerrero state) remain the region with the highest rate of monolingualism in indigenous languages in Mexico (according to the 2010 census of Mexico). De Ávila knew Celso through ethnobotanical research in Coicoyán which began in 1986. The recordings of Celso in this Collection were created in Oaxaca, Mexico. Sergio Méndez is a speaker of the Tlacotepec variety, born and raised in San Miguel Tlacotepec in the district of Juxtlahuaca. Tlacotepec lies on the highway that leads from Juxtlahuaca to Huajuapan and Mexico City, and most people there no longer speak Mixtec. Sergio Méndez learned Mixtec as a second language. Furthermore, he was involved with the Frente Indígena Oaxaqueño Binacional, an organization active on both sides of the US-Mexico border to defend the rights of immigrant workers. Sergio provided legal counseling to Mixtec migrants in the US, and that work led him to gain experience with a number of dialects. He could effectively understand speakers from various communities in the Mixteca Baja region. De Ávila's research was supported by a grant from the American Philosophical Society that allowed for Sergio to travel to the University of California Berkeley, where materials in this Collection were recorded.
    • Scope and content: Twelve cassette tapes containing elicitation of Mixtec words and phrases. Item 2018-07.001 contains original tapes; item 2018-07.002 contains two cassettes that are copies of the originals.

    • Primary contributor: Monica Macaulay (researcher, donor)
    • Additional contributor: Leanne Hinton (donor)
    • Languages: Chalcatongo de Hidalgo Mixtec, Mixtec, San Miguel el Grande Mixtec (mig), San Pablo Tijaltepec Mixtec
    • Dates: 1981-1992
    • Extent: 11 notebooks, 7 folders, 1 file slip box
    • Historical information: Monica Macaulay received a BA (1979) and PhD (1987) from UC Berkeley, with a dissertation titled "Morphology and Cliticization in Chalcatongo Mixtec" (available here: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/5qb9x714). She was subsequently an Assistant and then Associate Professor in the Department of English at Purdue University from 1987 to 1996 before joining the linguistics faculty as an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she has held the rank of Professor of Linguistics since 2001.
      In winter-spring 1981 and fall-winter 1981-1982, Leanne Hinton taught a graduate field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley, which led to various different kinds of work on Mixtec in the following years, including Macaulay's independent fieldwork in Oaxaca in summers 1982 and 1992, and their joint fieldwork there in summer 1985, both in and around the town of Chalcatongo de Hidalgo. See "Associated materials."
    • Scope and content: Field notes from elicitation sessions, including transcriptions of texts. In August 2020, Macaulay donated 13 notebooks related to her study of Mixtec during the period 1981-1992, in Berkeley and Oaxaca, Mexico. The first two notebooks are in the associated field methods collection (2020-16); the remainder are here (file bundles 010-020). The bulk of the lower-numbered file bundles (003-007, "Mixtec elicitations") are versions of the notes in existence by June 1987 that were reproduced on a typewriter, with handwritten corrections. File bundles 001-009 represent an earlier deposit made by Hinton on behalf of Macaulay.
      File bundle Macaulay.002 (typed field notes) was deaccessioned and moved to the field methods collection (2020-16). File bundles containing original notebooks corresponding to fieldwork in Oaxaca in summers 1982 and 1992 (010-020) have relations indicating which sound recordings in collection LA249 they correspond to; file bundles containing the typed notes have relations indicating which original notebook(s) they correspond to. All original notebooks and typed notes have been scanned and are available as digital files here. The PDF files containing the typed notes have been OCR'd and are searchable.
