At Fieldwork Group this week (Thursday 4/11 from 4:30-6:00 in Room 117), Scott AnderBois (Brown University) will present on a project he co-directs geared toward the documentation of the A’ingae language (Isolate, Ecuador). He will also present some software he and his students have developed during the project. The software, called LingView, provides a browser-based user interface to display annotated audio/video materials from ELAN and written materials from FLEx.
We will have two more meetings this semester, March 14 (this coming Thursday) and April 11. Both meetings will take place in Room 117 of the Linguistics Building (1085 Av du Docteur Penfield). Here’s what we’ll be doing in each:
March 14: Ethics and good practices in fieldwork
- Richard will be presenting on ethics and REB.
- We will be discussing a reading by Macaulay (2004), attached here, titled Training students on the realities of fieldwork
April 11: Guest presentation by Scott AnderBois (Brown University)
- Scott will be in town giving a colloquium at McGill and will present at our April 11 meeting
- He will present a language documentation project he co-directs on A’ingae (Isolate, Ecuador), including some software that he and his students have made along with the project.
