The Steps of language survey: an outline of practical methods was written by Dr. Ramzi W. Nahhas, last revised in March 2007. The Steps of Survey guides students and surveyors though each step it takes to complete a successful survey. It is is written in textbook format.

Much of the contents of this course were adapted from a previous Language Survey course taught at Payap University by Noel Mann, and from SIL International's modular survey courses, Principles of Language Survey (Gary Simons and Ted Bergman, 2001) and Procedures of Language Survey (Colleen Ahland, Katherine Liddle, David Liddle, Michael Ahland, and Jim Meyers, 2004).
