We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have

Hello everybody,

I am a Ph.D. student at Deccan College PG & Research Institute. I would
like to know if dictaphones, which are generally used by doctors and
lawyers, are useful for linguistic fieldwork? I will be thankfull if I get
any feedback on this. I have just read the summary posted on use of iPods
in linguistic fieldwork and came to know that they are not useful and
preferred. Since dictaphones are also compatible to computers I am
intterested to know about the issue. I'll post the summary of responses
which I'll get.

Thnak you in advance.

I have been doing work on endangered languages and language rights, and
while I am visiting Harare and Lusaka (I will also be able to visit other
places in each country) would like to meet with linguists or language
experts who could help me get to know the effects of language policies on
local languages.  I would like to gather some data to compare with data
regarding other unrelated languages.

Thanks.
