Book Information


Title: The Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Fieldwork
Edited By: Nicholas Thieberger
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199571888.do
Description:

This book offers a state-of-the-art guide to linguistic fieldwork, reflecting its
collaborative nature across the subfields of linguistics and disciplines such as
astronomy, anthropology, biology, musicology, and ethnography. Experienced
scholars and fieldworkers explain the methods and approaches needed to
understand a language in its full cultural context and to document it accessibly
and enduringly. They consider the application of new technological approaches
to recording and documentation, but never lose sight of the crucial relationship
between subject and researcher. The book is timely: an increased awareness
of dying languages and vanishing dialects has stimulated the impetus for
recording them as well as the funds required to do so. The handbook is an
indispensible source, guide, and reference for everyone involved in linguistic
and cultural fieldwork.
