Analytiques

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''Ce guide est fondé sur la methode d'analyse phonologique dite ''structuraliste''. Il vise à permettre de dégager, dans la langue étudiée, les phonèmes ou sons distinctifs. Ces sons seront étudiés, dans l'analyse proposée, selon divers points de vue; on décrira la réalisation phonétique articulatoire, on montrera leur organisation en système, leur distribution, leurs frequences, leurs combinaisons, etc...''

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''Le Questionnaire d'Inventaire Linguistique co;prend deux volets correspondant à deux objectifs complémentaires: un volet socio-linguistique réparti en trois questionnaires, et un volet specifiquement linguistique comprenant des renseignements phonétiques et phonologiques, un questionnaire de mots et de phrases, et des renseignements morphologiques complémentaires.''

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''This questionnaire is meant to supplement Comrie and Smith's questionnaire (1977) concerned with semantic reflexivity and reciprocity, two of the meanings frequently rendered by Reflexive Verbs. Our concern is with reflexive markers, their range of fontions, existence and non existence of particular RV types, the universql and language-specific properties of RV systems and existing RV types, and also with rivalling strategies used to express the meanings that can be rendered by RVs.''

    • 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.''

    • From the questionnaire's introduction:

      ''Here I provide the tests I have used to answer [some questions about articles]. Each of these tests can be applied to potential articles or to bare nouns in languages that lack articles.''

    • From the article's introduction:

      ''A method is described which allows us to plot, easily and rapidly, the positional relations among linguistic elements which have fixed order relative to each other (such as affixes). (...) The methodology linguists use is of interest in its own right, regardless of how its results are managed in general linguistic theory. This paper presents a method for simplifying one task in linguistic field work that has proved difficult in enough languages to merit general discussion.''
