  • P’urhepecha Research Group (P’-side)

    This group represents a continuation of research on P’urhepecha/Purépecha/Tarascan (ISO 639-3) begun in the Spring of 2017, a year ago, as part of a the Field Methods in Linguistics (Ling 573) class taught by Assoc. Prof. David Mora-Marín.

    Currently, the group includes four researchers: David Mora-Marín, who is investigating ethnoanatomical taxonomy; Tristan Bavol, who is eliciting materials that will be useful in the preparation of pedagogical materials for English speakers wishing to learn P’urhepecha; Yining Zhu, who is investigating predicative and attributive possession in P’urhepecha for her Honors Thesis; Mykel Brinkerhoff, who will assist with the collection of lexical data.

    In addition, we have been working with two native speaker consultants: Francisco Cuaraque and Adriana Cuaraque.

    We will post updates reporting on prelminary results of these projects in the near future.
