Program

Basque Summer Tutorial in Language Documentation

The workshop includes

01.

intensive practical training in all the phases of documentation

conception, elicitation, recording, signal analysis (ELAN, Praat, Audacity), annotation, archiving and dissemination.

02.

introductory training in the Basque language

Grammar, Sociolinguistics and Social and Cultural History of the language, and Basque Romance contact.

03.

personalized supervision of each of the projects accepted

as well as of the fieldwork carried out during the workshop period.

OBJECTIVE

The students should come out with a corpus that they will have built. They can get 6 ETCS for it and use it for their own professional interests.

LANGUAGES

The school will be carried out in English, but the staff is able to interact in Basque, French, Gascon, Spanish and German (besides English). Working directly with the informants will require in most of the cases a basic knowledge of French or Basque. Exceptionally, Spanish and English can also be used as a bridge language. Please let us know in your proposal what working languages you can use.
