Documentation and Phonation in SLZ

I am part of the documentation project of Santiago Laxopa Zapotec (SLZ), and co-coordinator of an Oto-Manguean languages working group rooted in the Department of the Linguistics, UCSC. My analytical focus is distinct phonation. A preliminary results obtained from a fieldwork I did with Jeff Adler is available as a poster below.
I have also been part of the organizing team of the Nido de Lenguas, sponsored by UCSC and Senderos.
