Title:Names of Insects
Organization of a Text Collection in Trumai, Aiming at its Scientific Documentation
Description:ENGLISH: List of names of insects, obtained with a Trumai speaker, using illustrations from the book "The Insects" by Eurico Santos (1982). In some cases the illustration from the book made the consultant remember the name of an insect similar to the one in the illustration (although not exactly the same). Since the Trumai language is endangered and the names of insects need to be registered, we took note of all the information provided by the consultant. However, it is still necessary to investigate more this topic; thus the list was just written down, but not recorded. ----- PORTUGUÊS: Lista de nomes de insetos, obtida com um falante de Trumai, usando ilustrações do livro "Os Insetos" de Eurico Santos (1982). Em alguns casos a ilustração do livro fez o falante se lembrar do nome de um inseto semelhante ao do desenho (embora não exatamente o mesmo). Dado que a língua Trumai está ameaçada e que os nomes de insetos precisam ser registrados, anotamos todas as informações fornecidas pelo informante. No entanto, ainda é necessário investigar mais esse tópico; assim sendo a lista foi apenas anotada, mas não gravada.
