Abstract:

A handy beginner's guide, this textbook introduces the various stages of
linguistic fieldwork, from the preparation of the work to the presentation of
the results. Drawing on over forty years of fieldwork experience between them,
in over two dozen languages, the authors pack the book with examples and
anecdotes from their experiences and include practical exercises for students
to test what they have learned. Independent of any particular perspective, the
methods can be applied to a wide range of fieldwork settings, for projects
with very different theoretical backgrounds and without the need to travel too
far. The book covers 'traditional fieldwork' such as language description and
documentation, as well as less typical methods, including language contact and
quantitative studies with experiments or questionnaires.
