Language Documentation and Description Volume 9



Volume 9 is a collection of papers dealing with several topics in language documentation:

  • language documentation and sustainability
  • ontologies in language documentation
  • negation, deixis and loan words in endangered languages
  • book reviews
  • The papers on the first topic arise from a workshop held at SOAS in February 2010, while the remainder are by post-doctoral fellows and former students at SOAS. The papers represent important contributions to the theory and practice of the field of language documentation by leading scholars and younger researchers. The volume is of interest to anyone concerned with documenting and describing languages.
