Fieldwork: methods and theory

University of Gothenburg 13-14 December 2018

The research area Linguistic Structures at the Department of Languages and Literatures invites contributions for the 2-day workshop Fieldwork: methods and theory. This workshop aims to bring researchers together who are interested in the method and theory of gathering linguistic data in the field. The workshop will include thematic discussion groups with a focus on data collection and management. The data collected can concern any area of linguistic inquiry such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, morphosyntax, semantics and pragmatics. We welcome contributions on all aspects of methods and theory in linguistic fieldwork, including, but not limited to:

  • elicitation techniques, in particular innovative techniques for semantic and pragmatic fieldwork
  • analyzing natural language data and corpora
  • issues in archiving and accessibility of data
  • investigating linguistic diversity and variation

The workshop combines oral presentations and thematic discussion sessions open to all participants to encourage active participation and an exchange of ideas.

No conference fee.
