Primary Instructor:

The topic of this seminar is the use of modern technology to describe and analyze languages. Arguably the most urgent issue currently facing linguistics is the frightening rate of language loss. To record languages that are disappearing, and to assist communities that wish to preserve or revitalize their languages, it is critical to make the best possible use of modern technologies and methods for data collection, management, analysis, archiving, and sharing. We will examine technologies and practices within the field, and approaches that might be adopted from other fields, such as computational linguistics, biology, astronomy, and digital humanities efforts.
