Linguists and Communities: Discursive Practice and the Status of Collaborative Language Work in Indigenous Communities
Eira, Christina
Language and Intercultural Communication, v8 n4 p278-297 Nov 2008
An analysis of linguistics texts based on Indigenous community fieldwork raises questions of authority, contribution and accreditation of linguists and community representatives. The recommendations of various professional practice guidelines are considered, and possible theoretical understandings introduced. Uninterrogated writing practices may indicate underlying discourses which inhibit the development of collaborative principles. (Contains 5 tables and 8 notes.)
