Collection Descriptive Notes:
Fernandez de Miranda gives an exposition (in Spanish) of the phonetics of the Ixcatec language of Oaxaca State in Mexico with the assistance of a 54-year-old native speaker (male) of Santa Maria Ixcatlán.
Collection Technical Notes:
The original recording was done (or begun) on February 13, 1950, at the “Laboratorio de Sonido” of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia (in Mexico City). The set consists of three wire recordings from Mexico which may, or may not, be the originals. In any case, they were copied onto audio tapes at the Old Lab c. 1954-62. Note: The DMA has a copy of the transcription F. de M. made of the recordings. Also note: Spool No. 2 of the wire recordings is missing. The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
