ANT 3950 - Field Methods in Linguistics (3)

When Offered: On Demand
In this course, students will have the opportunity to learn methods in language documentation and analysis, and will construct their own description of the language from scratch, through direct elicitations from a native-speaker consultant, in addition to testing previously created field grammars and associated lexicon. The course is structured to provide students with a hands-on experience in collecting, processing, and analyzing linguistic data for the purposes of language documentation and description. By the end of the course, participants will have become familiar-not just with the structure of an unfamiliar language-but also with the basic methodologies of linguistic fieldwork (elicitation and text analysis).
