    • Language: Paraguayan Guaraní (gug)
    • Dates: 2020-2021
    • Historical information: This collection consists of materials produced by students of the graduate-level field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley between September 2020 and May 2021 (Linguistics 240A/B). The course was taught by Prof. Lev Michael, and the language consultants were María (Mary) Gómez and Irma Easty Ovelar. The students in Linguistics 240A were Bossi, Dabkowski, Drummond, Grabowski, Jarvis, Khuu, and Russell; Wesley dos Santos, another UC Berkeley graduate student, was an occasional visitor. The students in 240B were Dabkowski, Jarvis, and Russell.
      The course was organized with the focus of 240A being the development of two descriptions of aspects of Paraguayan Guaraní phonology and/or grammar, without recourse to published materials on the language, while the focus of 240B was to develop a single research paper on some aspect of the language, engaging both with published materials on Paraguayan Guaraní, as well as with the broader scholarly literature.
      Gómez and Ovelar are native speakers of Paraguayan Guaraní residing in the US who learned the language as children and who still use the language when talking to friends and family in Paraguay. Gómez was born and raised in Asunción, Paraguay, and, as of August 2021, has been living in the US for several decades (in San Jose, CA for many years). Ovelar was born and raised in Concepción, and has lived in the New York City area for some two decades.
    • Scope and content: Video recordings and notes from in-class and small-group elicitation sessions pertaining to lexicon, grammar, and phonology, and of narrative texts. The course was carried out during the COVID-19 pandemic on Zoom. Recordings were made as compressed M4A files on Zoom, instead of as uncompressed WAV files using a digital recorder. Notes were taken using Google Docs, instead of with a notebook and pen; the Google documents are archived as PDF/A files. File bundles 004, 005, and 042 were deleted during the course of creating the archival deposit.
