This course involves reading and synthesizing major concepts in the foundational literature, as well as more recent publications in documentary linguistics. The readings are augmented by training in the core technical tasks of a language documentation project, including project planning, audio and video recording, metadata management, and archiving. A final project working with language consultants brings together the theoretical concepts and the technical skills in a small documentary corpus.
