Qs: Filming in the Field; Longitudinal Data
Editor for this issue: James Rider
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

situations such as: lack of indoor space for filming, lack of
electricity/lighting, community preferences for filming indoors/outdoors?
What should you frame when setting up the video camera? Is it more
important to focus on the mouth area to collect articulation data, or to be
able to view the whole body for gestures? What considerations have I
My deepest gratitude at your time and dedication.

that is not included in CHILDES. Does anybody know if such data exists and
how we may obtain it?
