Editor's Preface and List of Contributors (LDD 7)

  • Peter K. Austin


The papers in this volume of Language Documentation and Description are, with two exceptions, written up versions of lectures given at the 3L Summer School held at SOAS from 23rd June to 3rd July 2009. The exceptions are a chapter on audio in language documentation by David Nathan that is a revised version of a journal article, and my chapter on applying for a language documentation research grant that grew out of a handout developed for a tutorial session at the 3L Summer School. The chapters have suggestions for further reading and discussion exercises, and thus the volume could serve as an introductory textbook to some of the major topics within language documentation.
