• I created this questionnaire for my master's dissertation at the Université Paris-Diderot and the University of Edinburgh (Erasmus), under the supervision of Prof Agnes Celle. I organised a short field trip in the Scottish Borders in early January to get as much data as possible. It was an invaluable experience and more of these concrete experimental methods should be encouraged in the future.

      Special thanks are due to Dr Anthony Bour (University of Freiburg) for providing basic guidelines in the creation of the questionnaire. 


    • 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] if you wish to be informed about updates lest you miss them.)


    • 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. In order to make it more universally applicable to Tibetic-type systems I should greatly welcome input from researchers around the world." (Zeisler, 2016: 1)



    • 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.


    • Ce kit a été développé dans le cadre de ma thèse de doctorat intitulée "Le iaai aujourd'hui: évolutions sociolinguistiques et linguistiques d'une langue kanak de Nouvelle-Calédonie" et soutenue le 11 décembre 2013 à l'Université Lumière-Lyon 2 (sous la co-direction de Colette Grinevald & Claire Moyse-Faurie). La thèse a été financée par une Bourse d'Encouragement à la Recherche Universitaire du Gouvernement de la Nouvelle-Calédonie et les terrains d'enquête par les laboratoires de tutelles : Dynamique Du Langage (UMR 5596, CNRS) & LACITO (UMR 7107, CNRS). 


    • "The suggested questionnaire by no means claims to be exhaustive and can easily be supplemented with both new questions and illustrative material." (Kulikov, 2010: 1) All suggestions, criticisms and comments on this questionnaire will be greatly appreciated.





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