Aimée Lahaussois & Marine Vuillermet (eds). Methodological Tools for Linguistic Description and Typology. Honolulu : University of Hawai'i Press, 2019. Language Documentation and Conservation Special Publication, 16. 196 p. ISBN: 978-0-9973295-5-1
This volume is an outcome of a collaborative multi-year research project on Questionnaires for linguistic description and typology. For the purposes of the project, we use Questionnaire (with a capital Q) as a general term to cover any kind of methodological tool designed to elicit linguistic expressions, including word lists, visual stimuli, descriptive templates, field manuals, and the like. This volume thus brings together articles about written questionnaires and visual stimuli, which due to their epistemological differences are rarely considered together, and treats them as sub-types of the large category of methodological tools that help linguists carry out descriptive and comparative work.
