Minimum Education Level: BA
The course consists of two parts: a structural course on a non-familiar language (this year: Warrwa, Kimberley, Nyulnyulan, non Pama-Nyungan, Australia) and fieldwork workshops with a speaker of an underdescribed language.
Teacher: Prof. William McGregor, with fieldwork experience in several continents and author of a handful of descriptive grammars based on fieldwork.
Because of the practical orientation, only a limited number of students are admitted.
