Book Information


Title: Field Linguistics
Subtitle: A Beginner's Guide
Written By: Terry T. Crowley

This book is a comprehensive, practical guide to field linguistics. It
deals in particular with the problems arising from the documentation of
endangered languages. Terry Crowley shows how to prepare for that task, and
how to record, analyse, and describe languages in the filed. Mixing formal
instruction and anecdote, the author shares his rich experience with the
new generation of linguistic fieldworkers.
