Presentation of the volume

Methodologicaltools for linguistic description and typology is an outcome of a collaborativemulti-year research project on Questionnaires for linguistic description andtypology. For the purposes of the project, we use Questionnaire (with a capitalQ) as a general term to cover any kind of methodological tool designed toelicit linguistic expressions, including word lists, visual stimuli,descriptive templates, field manuals, and the like. This volume thus bringstogether articles about written questionnaires and visual stimuli, which due totheir epistemological differences are rarely considered together, and treatsthem as sub-types of the large category of methodological tools that helplinguists carry out descriptive and comparative work. 

The volume intends, through its 7 contributions, to remind fellowlinguists of the wide range of existing Questionnaires, ensuring that thecolossal individual or collective enterprise of creating these tools isacknowledged and can benefit other researchers. Even in cases where a specificQuestionnaire is not adapted to the investigation at hand with regard to thedomain it was designed to study, some part of it (the protocol, the medium, thevisual style) may still inspire others, and be adapted to new and differentneeds. Each contribution herein suggests valuable guidelines in the creation ofnew Questionnaires, discussing their approaches at various levels (design,test, readjustment/development, diffusion, etc). Particularly relevant tofieldworkers, this concentration of best practices may help avoid some of thefaux-pas that investigators have faced with particularly vulnerable peoples orcommunities
