Coordinating Institution: Stockholm University
Website: http://www.ling.su.se/summerschool2014

Dates: 23-Jun-2014 - 04-Jul-2014

Focus: The Summer School in Language Documentation and Linguistic Diversity (LDLD) offers courses focusing on various aspects of language documentation, description and support, from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Minimum Education Level: BA

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites advanced students (PhD. or M.A. level) in linguistics and related fields to participate in The International Summer School in Language Documentation and Linguistic Diversity.

Courses cover a wide range of topics, from theoretical and methodological issues in language documentation, description and support to language typology, from areal linguistics to multilingualism, from social cognition to the documentation of semantic diversity. In addition, the Summer School offers practical training in fieldwork and documentation methods, audio and video recording techniques, software for language documentation (such as Toolbox, Flex, ELAN), and digital mapping. The Summer School will also host a Young Linguists' International Conference on Saturday 28 June 2014.

The school can be seen as the next in the series of 3L summer schools and it draws upon the extensive expertise of the five main organizing institutions:
Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University
Centre for Research on Bilingualism, Stockholm University
