Focus: This summer school course in language description and linguistic fieldwork will give you a broad introduction to the practical and methodological aspects of fieldwork, and the art of language description. It will also provide insight in the structures of two unfamiliar languages.
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.

Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics
