Khmer Khes Data Analysis and Reporting (SU 17)

Data collection is already completed for this project, but data has been neither analyzed nor reported. Since the bulk of the work and expense has already been done for this project, we hope to make the results available to interested partners soon.

 

Syllostatistics (SU 18)

This report is a very short paper that was originally drafted in 2005. The researcher plans to put this out without many changes because it has been cited in other research. This proposed method provides assistance in lexical comparison for languages in Asia which have syllable based innovations.


Akha-Hani Survey Report (SU 20)

This report is a write-up of fieldwork among Akha and Hani dialects that took place during 1999-2001. There were one or more trips to China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam during this timeframe. This research was conducted in order to gain a broad overview of the dialects of the Akha and Hani speakers. The primary method of assessment included the collection wordlists and the researcher’s observation of the sociolinguistic situation. The wordlists were evaluated on the basis of lexical comparison to determine the general outlines of different speech varieties.


Lahu Survey Report (SU 21)

This report is a write-up of fieldwork among Lahu dialects that took place during 2001-2003. There were one or more trips to China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam during this timeframe. This research was conducted in order to gain a broad overview of the dialects of the Lahu speakers. The primary method of assessment included the collection wordlists and the researcher’s observation of the sociolinguistic situation. The wordlists were evaluated on the basis of lexical comparison to determine the general outlines of different speech varieties.


Bahnaric bibliography (SU 22)

Mon-Khmer (Austroasiatic) languages have always interested linguists because of their diversity. Research has been done by grammarians, phoneticians, phonologists, sociolinguists, applied linguists, typologists and historical linguists. For one particular subgroup, the internally diverse Bahnaric languages, there are currently 40 languages identified (Ethnologue, 2009) These Bahnaric languages are spoken in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam.
In an effort to support linguists working in Mainland Southeast Asia, a bibliography for the Bahnaric language family will be complied. This will supply both new and accomplished linguists with a comprehensive resource to find information on this language group. It is planned to organize the titles according to the language classification provided by Ethnologue (2009). Indexes for linguistic and geographical terms will point to related titles in different subject areas.


Sociolinguistic Survey of Stieng in Cambodia (SU 23)

Data for this project has already been collected and analyzed, however the report was never completed nor published. Since the bulk of the work and expense has already been done for this project, we hope to make the results available to interested partners soon.
