Language Documentation for Beginners [Workshop]
What do linguists do? What goes into the documentation of language structure and style? Why is language documentation important for humankind? Learn about these issues and more at this workshop which seeks to equip non-academics with the basic skills needed to carry out language documentation on their own.
Academics Dr Michael Yoshitaka "Mitcho" Erlewine and Dr Mário Pinharanda Nunes will take participants through the basics of documenting and preserving endangered languages like Kristang and Kristang’s sister creole in Macau, Maquísta. Registration required.
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
The first 15 people to register will receive a deck of Kristang flash cards, Bista di Kristang ('A Glimpse of Kristang') developed by Kodrah Kristang!
Note: One person will be entitled to only one deck for all events — if you are part of the early bird sign-ups for multiple Festa di Papia Kristang events, you will still only receive only one deck of flashcards.
