Field Reports

...from linguistics to logistics

Field Reports is a departmental discussion group concerned with issues involved in collecting linguistic data by working with native speakers and signers; i.e., by doing fieldwork. We meet once or twice a quarter. We focus on issues in data collection and analysis for qualitative documentation of areas of grammar other than phonetics or sociolinguistics, which have their own data collection methodologies and discussion groups in this department. We also discuss issues in "resource building", creating texts and dictionaries.

The group is managed on UW's Mailman server:

If you are preparing a report on your fieldwork, here are some suggested points to cover (.docx, .pdf).
