• 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)



    • "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".

    • Questionnaire élaboré par le Groupe des linguistes africanistes russes, c/o Valentin Vydrin déposé par Stéphane Robert, avec l'accord de V. Vydrin, après révision du français.


    • 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 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)

    • 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).
