Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Documentation

Query:   I am conducting a survey on issues surrounding using an intermediary language (i.e. a language that is not the linguist's mother tongue) to do linguistic fieldwork and analysis. Specifically, I am interested in the impact of the intermediary language on analyzing field data.

If you have conducted linguistic fieldwork using an intermediary language, I would be very grateful if you would 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. The survey may be found here:

Please feel free to forward this invitation to any other individuals or groups who may be interested.

Thank you,
