The Aché Documentation Project (ADOP) documents the language, practices, and cultural knowledge of the indigenous Aché groups of eastern Paraguay.
- This project focuses on the traditional language of the communities in all its varieties.
- Data include audio and video recordings of mythology, life history narratives, cultural practices, and traditional songs.
- Recordings are annotated in ELAN and Toolbox-files.
A second project—the Aché Language Studies Project (ALSP)—investigates language contact in history and as the result of present-day cultural contact and change.
The Documentation Team
The coordinators of both projects are Jost Gippert and Sebastian Drude. Research is being conducted by Eva-Maria Roessler, Jan David Hauck, and Warren Thompson.
