Master Class: Elicitation and Documentation of Verb Alignment and Argument Structure
|Title:||Master Class: Elicitation and Documentation of Verb Alignment and Argument Structure|
|Issue Date:||12 Mar 2015|
|Description:||The class examines how to go about collecting data for the purposes of documenting and describing the morphosyntactic alignment and verbal argument structure in an understudied language. The class begins with a bird’s eye view of major issues in alignment and argument structure, with the goal of considering the kinds of data that should be collected for the purposes of documentation, description, and further study. Methods for data collection are discussed, alongside positive and negative properties of the various methods. Case studies throughout the discussion are drawn from Ulwa (Misumalpan; Nicaragua).|
