Applied Field Linguistics: Delivering Linguistic Training to Speakers of Endangered Languages
Rice, Sally
Language and Education, v25 n4 p319-338 2011
As an offshoot of the Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute (CILLDI), the Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta offers a Community Linguist Certificate (CLC) program to speakers of First Peoples' languages of (mainly) Western Canada. The CLC program provides linguistic analysis and language documentation training to speakers of endangered languages interested in working toward their preservation and revitalization. This paper describes the development of what is essentially a training program for applied field linguists, outlines the coursework associated with the CLC and addresses some of the impact this program is having on speakers and instructional staff alike. (Contains 4 notes, 1 table, and 2 figures.)
