Abstract:

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