Atelier Doculang Linguistique de terrain et documentation
Frank Seifart (Universiteit van Amsterdam)
In this talk I will speak about the documentation of linguistic and cultural knowledge and practices of the Bora and Resígaro people for a comprehensive language documentation project (Seifart et al. 2009). I will focus on two aspects: (i) An effort to systematically sample communicative events with the aim of achieving representativeness of the documentation as a whole (Seifart 2008); and (ii) specific methods and procedures for different data types, including ceremonial festivals, staged events like fishing accompanied by good spells, and the elicitation of names for botanical and zoological species.
