Query:   Dear Colleagues:

I am conducting a survey on research methods among documentary linguists. This study focuses in particular on factors that hinder or facilitate collaboration between linguists and community members.

This is a revamped version of a previously distributed survey, and previous respondents are highly encouraged to take the survey again, as a number of questions have been added, changed, or clarified in response to suggestions from survey-takers and attendees of the International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation.

If you have conducted linguistic fieldwork on a less-commonly studied language (including your own native language or a dormant language), I would be very grateful if you could complete this survey. It should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete, and the data will not be linked to your identity in any way:

I would also be very grateful if you could forward this invitation to any other individuals or groups who might be interested.

Thank you,
