Iquito Fieldwork

June 21, 2008

I am back in Iquitos from the field for just a day. Tomorrow my partner Chris and I will be heading to the Iquito community of San Antonio de Pintuyacu for two weeks of intensive fieldwork, and to visit our friends in the community.

During these two weeks I have planned work on the Iquito ‘pitch accent’ system (really a mixed metrical/lexical tonal system), NP recursivity, discontinuous constituency in irrealis constructions, and some checking of the Iquito-Spanish dictionary that is nearing completion. 

In any event, I expect to be off  the air until around July 8th, as there is, alas, no internet connection in the community.
