About the Workshop
Language  use is fundamentally multimodal. When we speak point to places, we
nod to signal our understanding and we outline our thought with our hands.
Moreover, we coordinate our actions with our conversational partners. The
way we talk, the words we use, the information we include depends on the
common ground we share with our interlocutors and different social and
contextual dimensions. This complexity of language use is best captured with
video. Language documentation projects as well as any linguistic research
project investigating dimensions of conversational language use should
record video. However, video training is often limited to the technicalities
of how to use a video camera and microphones but does not provide a
theoretical framework for the features of language use. What is missing is
an understanding of the social, linguistic and cognitive foundation of
language use so that it becomes clear what needs to be captured how.

In this workshop we will address these topics and participants will learn
about the theoretical foundation of language use as a joint activity.
Focusing on manual gesture, participants will learn how gesture data play an
important role in understanding the fundamentally multimodal nature of
language use. In the second part we will provide detailed guidelines of how
to video record and this will be trained with hands on practice.
Participants will collect natural language use data of different types and
learn how to use video equipment. In the third part of the workshop the
recordings will be reviewed and discussed and guidelines for improvements
will be given. In a fourth part participants will be introduced to how to
use ELAN for gesture annotation and analysis.

The number of participants is limited to 30.
