Chiapas Trip 2015

I recently returned from a 2-week trip to Chiapas with Lauren Clemens (SUNY Albany), Ryan Bennett (Yale), and Cora Lesure (McGill). Together with Ch’ol-speakers and linguists Nicolás Arcos López (Universidad Intercultural de Tabasco) and Morelia Vázquez Martinez (ITS Macuspana) we ran two experiments in two different towns. One was a perceptual study (by Ryan), and the other was a production experiment designed to test focus-marking strategies. The latter was based on an experiment designed by Sasha Calhoun for Samoan, but with new pictures created by McGill undergraduate Blare Coughlin. The pictures are available for public use, with credit to Blare, and can be downloaded here. Stay tuned for results!
