Collection Our America

Initiated in 1994, this series aims to give an account of research generated in the area of Indigenous Languages, Language Contact and Spanish American Institute of Linguistics. Defined as native languages (disqualified, survivors, threatened from the conquest onwards), they need to be documented and studied to account not only their grammar but also the worldviews and cultures of those human groups that generated and used the languages. At the same time, It is fundamentally important to study and produce knowledge on contact situations with different Spanish dialects and varieties, both from diachronic and synchronic approaches. In short, the collection includes research in a field where much work remains to be done not only from a descriptive standpoint but also from a political and educational one. This area of research results in documentary work that encourages grammatical and pedagogical knowledge contained in the series and subseries of the collection: series documents, educational series, and American Indian languages.
