This is the second volume to be dedicated to the pioneering linguistic work
produced by the religious missionaries who, within the scope of the
European colonial enterprises along the period 1550-1850, described dozens
of autochthonous languages, many of which are only known today thanks to
their endeavours. The twelve papers joint in the present volume - which
dedicated a special attention to the orthographical and phonological
dimension of their work - provide a comprehensive picture of the
descriptive problems faced by these linguists avant la lettre, notably: the
difficulties faced before the less familiar features of these languages,
such as vowel quantity, accentuation, tonality, nasalization,
glottalization, 'gutturalization'; the building of (re)definitions and the
creation of a new metalanguage, like 'saltillo', 'guturaciones', etc.; the
creativity and innovations proposed by individual missionaries and the
instructive and pedagogical dimension of their work.
