The field of language documentation has matured over the last 15 years. A good knowledge of its methodology, standards and new trends is important to ensure qualitative, lasting, multipurpose, innovative as well as sustainable documentation.
This spring school, a CIDLeS-ELDP event, aims at bringing together not only students and researchers of linguistics and related fields engaged in language documentation but also speakers of endangered languages and local language workers that want to learn more about this research field and are eager to collaborate in documentation projects or to develop their own documentation.
The major goal of LDT 2016 is to introduce the participants into the theory and methods of language documentation. The goal is to acquire the knowledge and competence to conduct one’s own documentation projects with regard to endangered languages.

Topics of the courses
Audio and video recording and processing
