Checklist

    • 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 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.''

    • In her 2008 Linguistic Fieldwork: A Practical Guide, Claire Bowern provides some useful checklists in appendices B, C, D, and G:

      - Appendix B: Suggested fieldwork programme for an undescribed language.

      - Appendix C: A basic phonetics/ phonology checklist.

      - Appendix D: A basic morphology/ syntax checklist. (based on the Lingua Questionnaire of Comrie and Smith 1977.)

      - Appendix G: Basic Wordlist. (based on Comrie and Smith 1977).

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

    • 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:

    • This questionnaire is in the form of a check-list to be used while working on the description of motion events to ensure that all the relevant data, from different domains and categories, is taken in account.

      From the questionnaire's introduction:

    • From the Typological tools for field linguistics website:

      ''Why control? Control structures (also called "equi") were one of the first constructions to attract the interest of theoretical linguists. Over the last thirty years, these constructions have remained at the center of syntatic and semantic theorizing, shaping our understanding of language structure.

    • From the typological tools for field linguistics website: ''A questionnaire primarily aimed designed for grammar-writing, but with useful structural questions that should be addressed in the field; the Lingua Questionnaire underlies the North Holland/Croom Helm/Routledge Descriptive grammar series). This questionnaire provides the basic questions for the description of many of the constructions found in human language. A large number of grammars have been written based on the questionnaire. These constitute excellent models for users of the questionnaire."

    • 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"
