San Juan Bosco Chuxnabán Mixe
: A major project I started in 2005 invloves the documentation and description of San Juan Bosco Chuxnabán Mixe spoken by about nine hundred people in one village in the eastern midlands of Oacaxa, Mexico. At the moment, I am working on a web-based trilingual Mixe-English-Spanish dictionary
database which includes information about the phonetics and phonology of Chuxnabán Mixe. The databse also features Mixe soundfiles and pictures form the area. Another related project concerns the phonetic analysis of vowel length and phonation contrasts in Chuxnabán Mixe
, and, in particular, the examination of a possible three-way phonemic vowel length contrast.
