Qs: Motion Events; Audio Recording in Classrooms

Editor for this issue: Naomi Fox <foxlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Motion Events and Frog Stories
Date: 10-Jun-2005
From: Iraide Ibarretxe <iraideunizar.es>
Subject: Motion Events and Frog Stories

Dear Colleagues,

One of my research interests is the analysis of motion events (Talmy 1991,
2000). Recently, I’ve been investigating how languages differ (both
quantitatively and qualitatively) in the type of description they offer for
the semantic components of a motion event.

At the moment I’m trying to collect as much contrastive data on motion
events as possible. This is why I need your help.

I’m looking for researchers who have collected data using the picture-book
Frog, where are you?, the so-called Frog stories, and who are willing to
fill in a questionnaire that explores the description of motion events in
the Frog stories and the mechanisms that languages use for such a description.

If you’d like to take part and share your data with me, please send me a
message (iraideunizar.es).

Many thanks in advance!

Best wishes,

Subject: Audio recording in Classrooms

I will be doing classroom observations and making recordings of some class
periods in elementary and high schools next year. I wanted to ask if
anyone has experience with this sort of thing, and if you might have
recommendations as far as a digital recording device and microphone which
will work well in a classroom setting.

Many Thanks,
Jason Kooiker
