|Description||This collection contains materials collected, compiled, or created by Terrence Kaufman during his career researching the languages of Latin America. This collection does not contain materials that were collected under the auspices of an organized project (such as the Francisco Marroquín Linguistic Project or the Project for the Documentation of the Languages of MesoAmerica) nor does it contain materials for languages that were part of Kaufman's sustained independent research (which can be found in collections such as his Mayan Languages and Huasteca Nawa collections). In total, there are 43 folders containing 80 text documents, 202 files containing scanned images of file slips, one image and one video. |
The folders in this collection either contain analytical documents written by Kaufman about one or more Latin American languages or contain scanned images of file slips that were prepared by Kaufman. The data on these file slips either derives from elicitation conducted by Kaufman himself (as in the Suruí and Dení file slips) or were compiled from published sources by Kaufman, who grouped together perceived cognates and often made annotations on the file slips themselves (as with the Hokan file slips). The following sets of file slips are found in this collection:
