Query:   Dear Colleagues,

I am conducting a survey on research methods among linguists who study language in endangered language communities (broadly defined). This study focuses in particular on factors that hinder or facilitate collaboration.

If you have conducted linguistic fieldwork or other language work with speakers of an endangered 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:

Thank you,
