ROLD (Revitalising Older Documentation)

Otto Zwartjes is founder of the ROLD Research group and directed the program between 2006-2017.

Description of the research group

The members of the group investigate older texts (colonial, postcolonial, missionary and non-missionary, word lists of travelers and historians) with the following objectives: historical linguistics, the history of linguistics, linguistic documentation, translation studies and sociocultural analysis. The aim of historical linguistics is to describe older stages of languages as well as (processes of) language change, while the history of linguistics studies early thinking on languages, linguistics typologies and structures and linguistics. Linguistic documentation is a crucial part of both branches. These studies are often interrelated with those of the cultural context in which colonial societies developed. Non-Western languages are our main focus. http://aclc.uva.nl/content/research-groups/revitalizing-older-linguistic-documentation/revitalizing-older-linguistic-documentation.html

Six Meetings were organized at the University of Amsterdam. Selected papers of ROLD meetings are published in the STUF-review (Berlin Akademie Verlag) and in the on-line journal Linguistics in Amsterdam). http://aclc.uva.nl/research/groups/groups/groups/content/folder/revitalizing-older-linguistic-documentation/revitalizing-older-linguistic-documentation.html
