    • Language: Ticuna (tca)
    • Historical information: Ticuna is a language isolate spoken by approximately 60,000 people living in on and near the main course of the Amazon River in northern Peru, southern Colombia, and western Brazil.
      The data archived here, part of a collection under continuous development, were collected by UC Berkeley graduate student Amalia Skilton during field trips to the towns of Caballococha and Cushillococha, located in the district and province of Mariscal Ramón Castilla, Loreto, Peru. As of summer 2018, Caballococha was a multi-ethnic town of about 15,000 people in which the dominant language was Spanish. Cushillococha, located 8km overland from Caballococha, was a monoethnic Ticuna community of about 5,000 people in which the dominant language was Ticuna.
      Skilton's fieldwork between 2015 and 2017 was supported by Oswalt Grants from the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages. Fieldwork between August 1, 2017 and 2018 was supported by NSF BCS-1741571. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
      All file bundles consisting of recordings contain a text README file with detailed metadata.
    • Scope and content: Primary materials (e.g. audio and video recordings) and secondary materials (e.g. transcriptions, analyses) on Ticuna derived from *experimental* tasks.
      In order to render the language easier to type, transcriptions are written in a ASCII practical orthography which does not have a transparent relationship to the IPA. Bundle 027 contains a guide to the practical orthography.
