Description
FIELD METHODS IN LINGUISTICS
This course is meant to simulate the experience of linguistic field work, and raise awareness about the effectiveness of specific interview techniques for acquiring linguistic data. The course will give instruction and experience in eliciting data from a speaker of non (indo) European language. Students will undertake the investigation of the phonology, some aspect of grammar, and the ethno semantic study of a taxonomically structured semantic field such as plants or animals. Students will make detailed elicitation plans in advance of their administration.
