The initial recordings for this dictionary came from a Talking Dictionary Workshop taught by Dr. K. David Harrison as part of the 3rd annual “Festival de la Palabra” (Festival of Words) in honor of Colombia’s linguistic and cultural diversity, held at the Instituto Caro y Cuervo in Bogotá, Colombia, in October 2012. A print version of the Diccionario: páez-español / español-páez by Florence Gerdel and Marianna Slocum, will be used as a wordlist to elicit recordings by the Páez community as they work with Living Tongues to build an online talking dictionary.
