Qs: The Effects of Language Transcription

Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.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.cfm.

I am looking for information on the conventions of language transcription.
Obviously, we linguists have a myriad of ways for representing recorded
interactions.

I am interested in the ways this might influence our understanding of human
language.

In geography some maps might lead people to think about the world in certain
ways: http://go.hrw.com/atlas/norm_map/world.gif

However, there are many different orientations:

What have people written about for how this process occurs in language
transcription?

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
                            Linguistic Theories
                            Neurolinguistics
                            Writing Systems
