DescriptionThis project aims to document Tseltal language (Mayan language spoken in Chiapas, Mexico, by more than 300.000 speakers) in all its diversity, covering as many dialects, registers and speech genres as possible. It has been funded by two ELDP grants, both hosted at CIESAS-Sureste, in Chiapas:

1) "Documentation of Central Tseltal: creation of a broad corpus for multiple uses" (january-june 2006; see http://www.hrelp.org/grants/projects/index.php?projid=87)

2) "Documenting endangered Tseltal cultural activities: an Ethnographic and Discursive Audiovisual Corpus" (july 2007-june 2010; see http://www.hrelp.org/grants/projects/index.php?projid=138)
