Announcement: Linguistics in the Pub October 2012
Topic: Researching child language in the field
Late last year, we held our first LIP about documenting child language (see
We discussed why it might be useful to record child language as part of a
broader language documentation project. We also discussed what you need to
think about before you start documenting child language.
Since then a number of local linguists have begun to document child
language in the field. In October they will report on their experiences.
More seasoned child language researchers will be on hand to join in the
discussion too. Birgit Hellwig and Lauren Gawne will lead the session.

LIP is an occasional gathering of language activists and linguists in
Melbourne. All are welcome. Those in other parts of Australia and the
world who can't make it to the Melbourne LIPs are encouraged to
organise a local gathering to discuss this topic and support language
activities in your area.
