Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation; Typology
The Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) is proud to host the third 3L International Summer School on Language Documentation and Description from Monday, 5 July to Saturday, 17 July, 2010.
Registration for the 3L Summer School is now open! For more information on the program, courses, instructors, and more, please visit the 2010 3L Summer School website located at:
The 3L Summer School offers a variety of courses on all aspects of language documentation and description for both future and novice field linguists. Courses cover both practical and typological issues and include:
- Practical training in fieldwork methods and grammar writing
- Recording techniques and software for documentation, description and archiving
- In-depth courses on specific areas such as negation, tone, and kinship terminology
- The documentation of endangered Sign Languages
- Courses investigating various aspects of languages found in Central and South America, Indonesia, Africa, and the Caucasus
A Student Conference will be held during the Summer School on Saturday, 10 July, 2010, giving students an opportunity to present their ideas or research and receive feedback from their instructors and fellow peers.
The 3L Summer School draws upon the extensive expertise of the three organizing universities in the 3L Consortium: University of Lyon, Leiden University and the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. It builds upon the successes of the first 3L Summer School held in Lyon in 2008, and the second 3L Summer School held in London in 2009.
The 3L Summer School in 2010 will be followed by the Leiden Summer School in Languages and Linguistics, which will take place in the second half of July.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
