Description

C. Hermann Berendt's transcription of a vocabulary list of 146 entries, including the numbers 1 to 8, in Spanish and Boruca, the language of the Boruca Indians residing in southwestern Costa Rica, on the Pacific coast. According to the title page the vocabulary was collected by Philipp J. J. Valentini in 1862; the date of Berendt's transcription of it is unknown. A preface by Berendt (p. 3) describes Boruca as a Franciscan mission to which the Terraba Indians also belong; Berendt states that the town or village of Boruca was known to early Spanish explorers, citing an expedition of Gaspar de Espinosa in 1516. The text includes a few annotations by Berendt.
