• It was developed by Bettina Zeisler, within the framework of the DFG project "Evidentiality, epistemic modality, and speaker attitude in Ladakhi -Modality and the interface for semantics, pragmatics, and grammar"

      "This questionnaire has been developed primarily for the Tibetic languages, and is, in its initial stage, biased towards the Ladakhi dialects.

    • " The earliest version of this word list was created by Ecole Française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO, directed at that time by Georges Cœdès). The EFEO printed this list as a leaflet which was entrusted to civil servants of the colonial administration (Questionnaire linguistique, Hanoi: Imprimerie d'Extrême-Orient, 1938), aiming at extensive coverage of language varieties. The investigation was launched in 1938. Filled leaflets were gradually gathered at EFEO in Hanoi, until the process was interrupted by the war (in 1940).

    • This questionnaire is included in Methodologies in Semantic Fieldwork, M. Ryan Bochnak and Lisa Matthewson (eds), 2015, Oxford University Press. Carrie Gillon has contributed to this work, publishing a chapter "Investigating D in languages with and without articles".

    • This verb list is extracted from a volume of word lists edited by Austin Hale.

The author "tried to construct exclamatives so that they express the emotion of surprise that [she] find[s] the most important for exclamatives research". (Zevakhina, 2014: 1)



    • 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). 


    • This questionnaire can be found as an appendix (appendix II) in the book Word-Formation in the World's languages: a typological survey, (Štekauer, Valera and Kőrtvélyessy, 2012)


    • ''This material was developed by Benjamin Bruening of the University of Delaware as part of a project funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (grant number BCS-0518308). The purpose of the project is to investigate the syntax of quantifiers and scope in the languages of the world. [...]
