LING 401 - Field Methods

The vast majority of the world’s languages cannot be learned from textbooks or programmed tapes. They have never even been recorded. In this course, which is required for all linguistics majors, students meet with one or more bilingual speakers of a language unknown to them, and attempt by means of elicitation and analysis of texts to understand its structure. Prerequisite(s): LING 300   Spring semester. (4 Credits)
