Title: Texts For Linguistic Analysis
Subtitle: Glossed Narratives in Tarifit Berber
Written By: Clive W. McClelland
Series Title: Languages of the World/Text Collections 28
Description:

The value of "raw data" is an essential one: to provide students and
professors linguistic data that can be examined and analyzed in context,
whether the study is phonological or grammatical. This value is profound in
the context of current linguistics where "contrived" data devoid of context
is de rigueur. As much as is possible, analyses ought to be "data-led"
where conclusions are suggested after careful and methodical investigation.
Then one may properly posit well-grounded linguistic theory.

Toward furthering these aims, stories from Tarifit Berber native speakers
were collected over a ten year period. They represent a couple of dialects
within the Tarifit-speaking region in northeastern Morocco. They are
transcribed phonetically, with morpheme-by-morpheme glosses, syllable
divisions, and a free translation. Along with the printed versions, the
sound files of each of these stories are provided on an enclosed compact
disk. It is hoped that this compilation will provide a "target-rich"
environment for practical linguistic research for students as well as
teachers, and that this manner of glossing will help set a better standard
for presenting linguistic data. (plus CD-ROM)
