    ''Story-builder is an adaptable set of picture cards designed to facilitate creative story-telling and elicit natural speech on a wide range of topics. Speakers use 'character cards' and 'action cards' to create visual stories, which can be narrated in the speakers' own words. The deck can be adapted for a wide range of purposes, from field linguistic research to language pedagogy and games.

    ''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 manual attempts to make a contribution to the solution of several problems in the area of descriptive linguistic field-work, namely, those problems arising out of the need for accepted standards for the gathering, recording and reporting of linguistic data collected in the field.

    The material presented here is a revised and expanded form of a set of interview materials designed and used by the writer for eliciting in a study of socio-economic variables in Mexico City phonology.''

    ''The Questionnaire for Information Structure (QUIS) is designed for the investigation of information structure from a typological perspective. It provides a tool for the collection of natural linguistic data, both spoken and written, and, secondly, for the elaboration of grammars of information structure in genetically diverse languages.''

  • The Hunting Story is a visual stimulus (Vuillermet & Desnoyers 2013). This storybook has primarily been designed to elicit "associated motion" (henceforth AM) morphology, but can be used to examine any type of co-expression of a motion and a non-motion event. The visual stimulus comes together with a document (Vuillermet, in progress) describing the visual stimulus and its goals in details, instructions how to use the storybook (i.e.

  • 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).
