Title: Linguistic Fieldwork
Subtitle: A Practical Guide
Written By: Claire Bowern
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=280218
Description:

Linguistic Fieldwork is a practical guide to all the steps in linguistic
fieldwork, from planning where to work to applying for funding, from the
first session on a new language to writing up the data, from turning on the
recorder to depositing the recordings in an archive: Claire Bowern provides
a realistic account of the process of linguistic fieldwork. Doing field
research isn't like working in the lab with chemicals: both the field
worker and their consultants are real people who interact in complex ways.
This book is a guide to conducting that interaction in order to produce
research which benefits not only the linguistic community, but also
language speakers. Given the rapidity of decline in global linguistic
diversity, the next 30 years will be crucial for future knowledge of
languages all over the world.
