Description:
Sixto tells one of his trips to Bogota. The date of this trip is unknown, but we calculate it happened around the 70's. In this narrative he tells about his experience in Bogota, where he went together with the last of his three wives (Isabel). Sixto was in charge of taking care of some pigs, while his wife was to do housechores. They did not last long in that place, because they were not treated fairly. Sixto tells that they were given rotten food, while the good food was given to big dogs that the owner had. The owner was a big lady.
Tinigua [ISO 639-3:tit] is the last surviving member of an independent South American Tiniguan family whose other (two?) members have disappeared without substantial documentation; with only one remaining speaker, it is now critically endangered. Additionally, the language is seriously underdocumented and underdescribed. This project aims to provide a linguistic documentation of Tinigua through work with Sixto Muñoz, its last remaining speaker. The expected outcomes of this project are a transcribed, translated and annotated audio-visual corpus of the language, a grammatical description, and a lexicon. Additionally, I aim to gather further historical and cultural data on the Tiniguan culture.
Speaker of Tinigua. Last speaker known of the language.
