Abstract

Missionary Linguistic Studies from Mesoamerica to Patagonia presents the results of in-depth studies of grammars, vocabularies and religious texts, dating from the sixteenth – nineteenth century. The researches involve twenty (extinct) indigenous Mesoamerican and South American languages : Matlatzinca, Mixtec, Nahuatl, Purépecha, Zapotec (Mexico) ; K’iche, Kaqchikel (Guatemala) ; Amage, Aymara, Cholón, Huarpe, Kunza, Mochica, Mapudungun, Proto-Tacanan, Pukina, Quechua, Uru-Chipaya (Peru) ; Tehuelche (Patagonia) ; (Tupi-)Guarani (Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay). The results of the studies include : a) a digital model of a good, conveniently arranged vocabulary, applicable to all indigenous Amerindian languages ; b) disclosure of intertextual relationships, language contacts, circulation of knowledge ; c) insights in grammatical structures ; d) phone analyses ; e) transcriptions, so that the texts remain accessible for further research. f) the architecture of grammars ; g) conceptual evolutions and innovations in grammaticography.
