Annual Courses

Since 2016, our annual courses are hosted by a different Bolivian institution each year. The purpose is to reach a broader audience and encourage speakers of indigenous languages to document their own language. Our final goal is to increase Bolivian linguists doing research on the different indigenous languages of our country.


Professor Andrés Salanova, teaching Linguistic Typology, Santa Cruz, Bolivia 2018.
