INTRODUCTION TO LINGUISTIC FIELD METHODS
Bert Vaux & Justin Cooper, Harvard University

The present volume addresses the need for an up-to-date, accessible, and
comprehensive introduction to the elicitation of linguistic data from
native speaker informants.  The material, following an introductory
chapter surveying the general enterprise of field research, is organized
into eight major areas of current linguistic and anthropological
interest: Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Semantics,
Sociolinguistics / Dialectology, Lexicography, and Folklore.  The
chapters are designed to be covered at a rate of one per week, based on
a sixteen-week semester.  Each chapter presents basic structures to be
elicited, and provides cautionary tales drawn from the experiences of
seasoned field workers who have attempted to elicit these structures.
These, in turn, are followed by suggested readings and illustrative
exercises for each chapter.  Emphasis is placed not on developing a
theory of field work, but rather on providing enlightening suggestions
and entertaining anecdotes designed to guide students down their own
personal path to linguistic discovery.

Contents: Introduction, Transcription, Basic Lexicography, Semantics,
