CLLAS graduate student grantee Thiago Pereira Vital de Castro, Department of Linguistics, will talk about the research he conducted with the support of a CLLAS Graduate Student Research Award.
He wrote in his application: “The primary goal of my research trip to Brazil this summer is to continue the documentation of the Djeoromitxi language and culture. These recordings will form the basis from which I ask further questions necessary to understand how the forms of the language combine both to encode the universal communicative functions shared by all languages (who did what to whom, when, why, etc.) and to create the unique kinds of information that the Djeoromitxi speech community found essential for their life before integration.”
