• This questionnaire, which was published as an appendix to an article, was designed to elicit gender indexicality in grammar, based on a typological survey of the phenomenon in 41 indigenous South American languages, as well as with the goal of "encouraging and facilitating research on genderlects" (Rose, 2015 : 1).

    Broadly defined, 'gender indexicality' refers to the way speakers give clues about their gender within a speech situation.
    In this article, 'gender idexicality' refers to the gender of the addressee, or both the speaker and the addressee.


  • This questionnaire is mainly the result of the author's own fieldwork and can be found as the appendix 2 of Linguistic Fieldwork: A Student Guide, (Jeannette Saket & Daniel L. Everett, 2012). 


  • Le présent matériel a été élaboré dans le contexte d’une étude phonologique de plusieurs langues chibcha du Costa Rica (bribri, cabécar, malecu), plus précisément dans le cadre d'une thèse de doctorat de l'Université Lumière Lyon 2 et du Laboratoire Dynamique Du Langage (UMR 5596), menée par Natacha Chevrier et encadrée par Sophie Manus (Lyon 2, DDL) et Gérard Philippson (Inalco, DDL).



  • "Information structure is concerned both with ‘mental states’ of speakers and hearers and with linguistic means used to convey these mental states. In other words, the linguist interested in information structure (IS), deals simultaneously with formal and communicative aspects of language. The main contrasts concern ‘new’, ‘accessible’ and ‘given’, as well as ‘topic’, focus,’ and ‘background’". (Skopeteas et al., 2006: 1)


  • ''These questionnaires were developed by the AUTOTYP project. AUTOTYP is a large-scale research program with goals in both quantitative and qualitative typology. In quantitative typology, it is interested in detecting and explaining geographical distributions of typological features and in producing statistical estimates of universal preferences as well as of genealogical inheritance and areal diffusion potentials.


  • It is intended to assist researchers in writing grammatical sketches of languages related to Persian.



  • ''The authors have made available a database containing the results of their use of the questionnaire. There are several versions of the database available. [...] 

    Description (by the authors) of the goal of the StressTyp project:

    The goal of StressTyp is to offer a quick entry to the primary and secondary literature on stress systems of the languages of the world. By primary literature we mean grammars and articles that provide descriptions of stress patterns, examples and the like. By secondary sources we refer to theoretical works on stress.  


  • "Where the language is spoken, its classification, a description of the corpus of data the description is based on and how much of it, when it was collected, who the principal language helpers were, etc., references to anything else written on the language, highlight the linguistically interesting features of the language." (Roberts, 1992: 1)
