The Acquisition of Northern Pame

The Acquisition of Northern Pame

This project is funded by the National Science Foundation's Documenting Endangered Languages program to document how children acquire Northern Pame. Northern Pame is an Otomanguean language spoken in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí by 6,000 people living in scattered communities. The project will record children between 2 and 4-years old as they acquire Northern Pame as their first language. The differences between Northern Pame and English provide an opportunity to test current acquisition theories on a number of dimensions.
