Abstract:

Broad scope and coverage from four points of view: the geographical, the
historical, the philosophical and the encyclopedic.

Includes detailed discussions of the theoretical, practical and ethical
issues involved in language selection, data collection, data management.

A survey of past and present approaches and solutions to problems in the
field, and the historical, political, and social variables correlating with
fieldwork in different areas of the world.

This handbook provides the most comprehensive reference on linguistic
fieldwork on the market bringing together all the reader needs to carry out
successful linguistic fieldwork. The book is based on the experiences of
two veteran linguistic fieldworkers and advice from more than twenty active
fieldwork researchers. They provide an encyclopedic review of current
publications on linguistic fieldwork and offer a unique survey of past and
present approaches and solutions to problems in the field. They also
examine the historical, political, and social variables correlating with
fieldwork in different areas of the world. The book includes information
omitted in most other texts on the subject, such as the collection,
representation, management, and methods of extracting grammatical
information from discourse and conversational data. Extensive practical
fieldwork tips are provided, as well as a handy sketch of major typological
features for use in linguistic analysis.
