en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 18 Sep 2014
This book offers a state-of-the-art guide to linguistic fieldwork, reflecting its collaborative nature across the subfields of linguistics and disciplines such as astronomy, anthropology, biology, musicology, and ethnography. Experienced scholars and fieldworkers explain the methods and approaches needed to understand a language in its full cultural context and to document it accessibly and enduringly. They consider the application of new technological approaches torecording and documentation, but never lose sight of the crucial relationship between subject and researcher. The book is timely: an increased awareness of dying languages and vanishing dialects has stimulated the impetus for recording them as well as the funds required to do so. The handbook is anindispensible source, guide, and reference for everyone involved in linguistic and cultural work.

Notă biografică

Nicholas Thieberger is a linguist whose grammar of South Efate broke new ground to include citable data linked to an archival version of the primary recordings. He is interested in developments in e-humanities methods and their potential to improve research practice, and is currently developing methods for creating reusable data sets from fieldwork on previously unrecorded languages. He is the project officer with the multi-institutional Pacific and Regional Archivefor Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (, a databank that holds 3,000 hours of digitised audio files. He was an Assistant Professor in linguistics at the University of Hawai'i and is currently an Australian Research Council QEII Fellow at the University of Melbourne.
