> Dear linguist,
> Between August 5 and 18 2013 an intensive course will be offered in language description and fieldwork,
> at Aarhus University. A brief description is given here, and a link to additional information.
> It will be two weeks of full time work. A reading package will also be provided, to be read in advance of the course.
> Please forward to interested individuals or organizations.
> Note the deadline in two weeks.
> A brief course description is found here:
> Language Description and Linguistic Fieldwork
> ECTS: 10.
> Level: Master.
> Date: 5-18 August.
> Venue: Aarhus
> In the first part of the course, students will learn the structure of an exotic language. This language is Shua, a Khoe-Kwadi language (a so-called "click language") spoken in Botswana. The course is not geared towards conversational competence in that language, but in providing insights into its structure and usage. The teacher Bill McGregor has extensive fieldwork experience in Australia and Africa.
> In the second week, students will learn theoretical, ethical, methodological and ethnographic aspects of linguistic fieldwork. Students will learn how to analyze the structure of an unknown language. The teacher is Eeva Sippola, who did extensive fieldwork in the Phillippines. Classes also involve practical sessions with a speaker of an unfamiliar language. Required pre-course readings will be provided. The course is offered by Department of Aesthetics and Communication.
> Lecturers: William McGregor, first week. Eeva Sippola, second week.
> More information is provided here:
> (note, however, that the Shua intensive course will be offered in the first week, and the practical fieldwork course in week two)
