Title: Fieldwork and Linguistic Analysis in Indigenous Languages of the Americas
Edited By: Andrea L. Berez
Jean Mulder
Daisy Rosenblum
URL: http://nflrc.hawaii.edu/ldc/sp02/
Series Title: Language Documentation & Conservation Special Publication
Description:

This volume is a collection of articles on the role that field-based
research plays in the linguistic analysis of indigenous American languages.
The articles encompass both theoretical and functional considerations,
highlighting how the collection of data within the speaker community
informs theory, and vice-versa. The authors address theoretical issues in a
wide range of sub-disciplines: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax,
historical linguistics, pragmatics, and discourse. At the same time, the
analyses are framed in terms of how they arose from the challenges and
felicities of fieldwork in North, Central, and South American language
communities.

This volume is of interest to theoretical and field linguists alike, in
addition to those in Native American linguistics and language documentation.
