The primary focus of this course is on practical work with a speaker of a (almost) non-described language, including structure and analysis of data.
The course also gives a more theoretical orientation on related themes such as ethical considerations, interaction techniques, aspects of documentation and recording and differences between description and documentation, practical considerations in the fieldwork situation, presentation of data, as well as general/typological aspects of syntax, morphology, phonology and phonetics, in accordance with the needs of the practical work.
Instruction is given in the form of lectures and seminars and occasions for
teacher-led and own consulting sessions with the speaker. Students will work in groups on different areas of language and continuously exchange data and experiences.
The language of instruction is English.
Instruction is given in the form of distance teaching or on campus as indicated for the particular run of the course.
This course is examined on the basis of continuous written assignments and a written report.
The schedule will be available no later than one month before the start of the course. We do not recommend print-outs as changes can occur. At the start of the course, your department will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.
