This course critically compares and contrasts methodological approaches for both language documentation and linguistic analysis. We will investigate the advantages and disadvantages of tools used in both experimental and language documentation approaches such as elicitation, rating tasks, interviews, focus groups, participatory observation, storyboards, and recordings of naturalistic conversation. We will also investigate how these tools can be effectively disseminated, such as through building a corpus and archiving. One of the main takeaway points is for students to develop one of these methods for their own research and for potential cross-linguistic dissemination.
