Working Papers


The SIL-Mexico Electronic Working Papers is a series of (electronic-only) linguistics papers that began to be published in 2008. These papers generally represent work in progress by linguists affiliated with the Mexico branch of the Summer Institute of Linguistics who are studying indigenous languages of Mexico.

This series continues the tradition of the SIL-Mexico Workpapers series that was occasionally published from 1974-1997, scanned copies of which are available through the link below.

A paper may be written in English or Spanish, as indicated by the title of the paper itself.
