Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Linguistic Field Methods approaches the elicitation of linguistic data from native speaker informants in a novel and engaging manner. The authors follow introductory chapters surveying the general enterprise of field research with chapters exploring methods of eliciting data in eight major areas of current linguistic interest: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics and dialectology, and historical linguistics. Bert Vaux teaches phonology and morphology at the University of Cambridge. Though much of his fieldwork focuses on endangered dialects of Armenian, he has also conducted field research on Abkhaz, Aramaic, Calypso, Cape Verdean Creole, many dialects of English, Ghanaian Pidgin English, Gujarati, Krio, Lak, Singlish, Tigrinya, Tok Pisin, Turkish, Uyghur, Yakut, and Zaza. Justin Cooper studied linguistics at Dartmouth and Harvard. He is presently a lawyer at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP. Emily Tucker studied linguistics at Harvard and UCLA, and is currently a graduate student in computer science at the Oregon Graduate Center.
