Subject: Summary: Field Ling Dissertation Survey

Doug Whalen has done us a service with his survey of dissertations and
field linguistics.

In light of this, I'd mention that Verna Stutzman (of SIL) will be
teaching a course at next summer's LSA Summer Institute which is
largely training in the LinguaLinks software. This is a very good tool
for managing field data, particularly for lexical entries and semantic
relations between them. The course title is ''Lexicography and
Semantics Tools.'' Since my impression is that most field methods
courses in American universities don't do much systematic teaching on
how to manage your field data, this might be something to pass along
to those interested.
