Title Last Words of the Charrúa Medicine-Man, Sennaqueh: A New Hypothesis about their Interpretation
Últimas palabras del médico charrúa Senaqué: novel hipótesis respecto a su interpretación
 
Creator Campione-Piccardo, José
 
Description In the present submission a new hypothesis is suggested with respect to the interpretation that has been given to the last words of the Charrúa medicine-man Senaqué since his death in Paris on July 26, 1833. The version initiated by the intern Camus, which has lasted until now, is understandable from a Parisian or French point of view, but does not seem to echo Senaqué’s origins, his character, his language, his trajectory and his beliefs, and it could possibly be the result of an honest but erroneous interpretation based on the phonetic transcription into French (i.e., code-switching between the word as uttered and the word as heard and decoded) by the French-speaking persons who were present at his death, and who were the only ones to hear him say them.
En el presente artículo se sugiere una hipótesis alternativa respecto de la interpretación que se les ha dado a las últimas palabras del médico indígena charrúa Senaqué desde su fallecimiento en Paris el 26 de julio de 1833. La versión que iniciara el interno Camus, y que se ha mantenido hasta el presente, es entendible desde un punto de vista parisino y francés, pero no parece condecir con los orígenes de Senaqué, su carácter, su habla, su trayectoria y sus creencias, y es posible que se trate de una honesta pero errónea interpretación basada en la transcripción fonética al francés (mediante cambio de código lingüístico entre lo enunciado por quien habla y el decodificado por parte de quien le oye) por las personas de habla francesa que estaban presentes al momento de su muerte, y que fueran las únicas que le oyeron pronunciarlas.
