Radcliffe Fellows' Presentation Series: Roberto Zariquiey
Understanding Language Survival: Theory, Methods, and Action

Zariquiey is a linguist specializing in Amazonian linguistic diversity, especially indigenous Peruvian languages. His fellowship project focuses on the grammar of Iskonawa, an Amazonian language with only five elderly speakers, assessing from a broad theoretical and methodological perspective the challenges that obsolescence poses for grammatical description and language documentation—and critically investigating the belief that obsolescing languages lose complexity, exhibit defective grammars, and do not deserve scientific attention.
