• "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.

  • Ce kit a été conçu dans le cadre de recherches doctorales (contrat doctoral ED3LA) visant à la réalisation d’une grammaire de la langue stieng. La thèse, soutenue en 2014, a été réalisée au laboratoire DDL (UMR 5596, CNRS), sous la co-direction de Colette Grinevald et Scott Delancey (University of Oregon). Les séjours de terrain ont bénéficié du soutien du Center for Khmer Studies (CKS), de l’Ecole Française d’Extrême Orient (EFEO) ainsi que du labex ASLAN.
