Sémantique

    • This questionnaire has been developped during my postdoctoral studies (2016-2018) at the Laboratoire Dynamique Du Langage in Lyon and is still work in progress. (You can contact me at marine.vuillermet[AT]cnrs.fr if you wish to be informed about updates lest you miss them.)

    • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

      ''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. To this end, the PI has created a series of pictures that can be used to elicit scope judgments from native speakers of the language being investigated. 

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''This questionnaire is meant to supplement Comrie and Smith's questionnaire (1977) concerned with semantic reflexivity and reciprocity, two of the meanings frequently rendered by Reflexive Verbs. Our concern is with reflexive markers, their range of fontions, existence and non existence of particular RV types, the universql and language-specific properties of RV systems and existing RV types, and also with rivalling strategies used to express the meanings that can be rendered by RVs.''

    • From the introduction:

      ''this paper descrIbes the author's methods of handling unsophisticated informants while investigating the Teleefodl language spoken by about 4000 people in the vicinity of Telefomin, Territory of New Guinea. The discussion includes several aspects of field methodology that have received scant attentIon in the literature to date: linguistic surveys, pair testing for phonology, monolingual informants, and the uses of tape recorders.''

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''Here I provide the tests I have used to answer [some questions about articles]. Each of these tests can be applied to potential articles or to bare nouns in languages that lack articles.''

    • Summary of the article from the MPI website:

    • This questionnaire provides the basic questions for the description of Persian. It is intended to assist researchers in writing grammatical sketches of languages related to Persian.

    • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

      ''The goal of this questionnaire is to obtain an overview of metaphorical expressions in a wide variety of the world's languages, in order to seek out universalities and diversities in the domain of figurative language. The questionnaire may be filled out in varying degrees of detail. Realistic response times might vary from half an hour to a few hours. The questionnaire is currently available in English, Indonesian and Portuguese versions, for use by linguists in different contact-language situations.''

    • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

      ''A questionnaire about different types of word-formation strategies and different type of syntactic and semantic categories that often are associated with special word-formation strategies.''
