Title:IPA Illustration of Q'anjob'al
Author(s):Lichtman, Karen; Chang, Shawn; Cramer, Jennifer S.; Crespo del Rio, Claudia; Huensch, Amanda; Morales, Alexandra; Hallett, Jill
Subject(s):Q'anjob'al, Mayan, Language description, Phonetics, Phonology
Abstract:This IPA illustration was written jointly by the seven members of the Fall 2008 Field Methods class at the University of Illinois and revised by the first author. It presents the consonants and vowels of Q’anjob’al, borrowed sounds, syllable structure, suprasegmentals, allophonic variation, and phonemic and phonetic transcriptions of the North Wind and the Sun story. All data is drawn from work sessions with a single Q’anjob’al speaker from Santa Eulalia, Guatemala. Santa Eulalia is considered one of the more conservative areas linguistically (Raymundo et al., 2005); however, we found some phonetic changes associated with the more novel areas.
