Documentary Linguistics and Computational Linguistics: A Response to Brooks
Bird, Steven; Chiang, David; Frowein, Friedel; Hanke, Florian; Vaswani, Ashish
Language Documentation & Conservation, v9 p10-11 2015
In mid-2012, the authors organized a two-week workshop in Papua New Guinea to provide training in basic techniques and technologies for language documentation, and to gain understanding of how these technologies might be improved in the future. An assessment of the workshop was conducted by Brooks with the central idea that the workshop's computational goal was incompatible with its documentary goal. This article is a response to Brooks' assessment, with the foundation of the response being that there was a single goal of the workshop--documenting languages of Papua New Guinea. [For Brooks' response to the workshop, see "On Training in Language Documentation and Capacity Building in Papua New Guinea: A Response to Bird et al." (EJ1075308).]
