Dissertations on Amazonian Languages

December 30, 2007

I recently discovered a very nice online resource: an online collection of dissertations and master’s theses on Amazonian languages, here (http://www.etnolinguistica.org/teses). The majority of the dissertations on this page were written by students at Brazilian universities, but there are also several from US and European ones. It’s especially nice that this page has Brazilian dissertations, since those are frequently hard to get a hold of outside of Brazil.

Here, to whet your appetite, is a small sample of titles:

Ferreira, Rogério Vicente. 2005. Língua Matis (Pano): uma descrição gramatical. Doutorado, Unicamp.

Freitas, Deborah de Brito Albuquerque Pontes. 2003. Escola Makuxi : identidades em construção. Doutorado, Unicamp

Santos, Manoel Gomes dos. 2006. Uma gramática do Wapixana (Aruák): aspectos da fonologia, da morfologia e da sintaxe. Doutorado, Unicamp.

Sousa Filho, Sinval Martins de. 2007. Aspectos morfossintáticos da língua Akwe-Xerente. Doutorado, UFG.

Zuccolillo, Carolina Maria Rodriguez. 2000. Língua, nação e nacionalismo: um estudo sobre o Guarani no Paraguai. Doutorado, Unicamp.

    Dr. Corbera,

    Gracias por esta información valiosa. El trabajo de investigación realizado por los profesores y estudiantes en UNICAMP es muy impresionante, y es extremadamente útil poder aceder a estos documentos en formato electrónico.


  4. Hi, Lev. Thanks for the post. I just wanted to let you know that the site went through a major update recently, with the addition of dozens of works produced by Brazilian and foreign universities. I would also like to remind everyone that Etnolinguistica.Org is a wiki, so all are welcome to become members (http://www.etnolinguistica.org/system:join) and help us keep it up-to-date.
