Title:Elicited narrative: The Frog Story
Lowland Chontal Documentation
Contributor (consultant):eulalia
Description:'Frog, Where Are You?' (Mayer 1969) is a textless picture book used for cross-linguistic elicitation.
The Lowland Chontal Documentation project began as a dissertation project at the University of California at Santa Barbara (1997-2001), continued at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (2002-2004), and was finished through a post-doctoral research grant funded by the Volkswagen Foundation (2004-2007). The goals of the dissertation research were (1) to investigate the formal, semantic, and discourse-functional profiles of predicates used to describe events of change of location, change of position, and change of state, and (2) to produce a grammatical sketch of the language in a descriptive and discourse-functional framework. The post-doctoral documentation project encompassed both linguistic and anthropological investigation. The goals of this larger project were (1) to produce a Chontal-English-Spanish dictionary, (2) to produce a comprehensive description of the grammar of Lowland Chontal, (3) to document the cultural heritage of the Chontalpa with respect to the land itself, and (4) to create an electronic archive of all audio and video materials and related texts.
EER and I went through the book once together, to demonstrate how the series of pictures tells a connected story. She then went page by page and told the story.
