In this course, students work directly with a speaker of an unfamiliar language to gather data and analyze the structures of that language. Students develop inference techniques for eliciting, understanding, analyzing, and presenting complex linguistic data. We discuss and enact best practices for working collaboratively with speech communities, including ethical training in Human Subjects research. Students also gain practical experience using state-of-the-art digital recording, annotation, and archiving for scientific purposes. A different (typically non-European) language will be investigated each time the course is taught.
