The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced the awarding of $12.8 million to support 253 humanities projects across the nation.
ISA faculty member Bruno Estigarribia was the recipient of one of these grants for his project, “A Sociolinguistic Study of Guarani, the Indigenous Language of Paraguay.” The project is a book-length study of Paraguayan Guarani, the only indigenous language in the western hemisphere to be spoken by a majority of the nonindigenous population.
