Dialect Atlas of Argentina

Description: The data were collected by Laura Colantoni in Argentina for the Linguistic Atlas of Argentina (Director: Ofelia Kovacci) from 1994-97. Speakers (Male: 49, Female: 46) were born and lifelong residents of the locations under study and ranged in age from 25-65. They had elementary education or less (some were illiterate) and various occupations (farmers, public servants, among others).

Data elicitation: Dialectological interviews were undertaken individually with each speaker. Recordings took place in a variety of locations and, where possible, in a quiet room. Interviews ranged from 1 to 3 hours, and included vocabulary elicitation plus short narratives.
