Course Overview

This seminar will explore language documentation with an emphasis on practices related to the documentation of signed languages. We will first examine different ways language documentation (sometimes called ¿documentary linguistics¿) has been conceptualized by researchers. We will then look at work that has been done in signed languages (including field work and signed language corpora) along with examining theoretical concepts and specific case studies in the literature. We will also examine signed language data sets available to researchers online.
