Amérique Centrale et du Sud


    • 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.

    • "What we call 'targeted construction storyboards' have the additional property that the story is designed to include at least one targeted context that can be used to test hypotheses about the relation between linguistic forms and that context. The storyboards thus combine the advantages of spontaneous speech with the benefit of being able to test hypotheses about particular linguistic elements or constructions.

    • 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 questionnaire was, at first, designed to be used for Javanese.

    • This questionnaire is based on a previous questionnaire made by Natalia Zevakhina, for her Ph.D Dissertation (2012), The syntax of exclamative constructions. 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)

    • 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).
