Abstract:

Language documentation, also often called documentary linguistics, is a
relatively new subfield in linguistics which has emerged in part as a
response to the pressing need for collecting, describing, and archiving
material on the increasing number of endangered languages. The present book
details the most recent developments in this rapidly developing field with
papers written by linguists primarily based in academic institutions in
North America, although many conduct their fieldwork elsewhere. The
articles in this volume -- position papers and case studies -- focus on
some of the most critical issues in the field. These include (1) the nature
of contributions to linguistic theory and method provided by documentary
linguistics, including the content appropriate for documentation; (2) the
impact and demands of technology in documentation; (3) matters of practice
in collaborations among linguists and communities, and in the necessary
training of students and community members to conduct documentation
activities; and (4) the ethical issues involved in documentary linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation
