WP125 Methodological foundations in linguistic ethnography

Rampton, Maybin & Roberts
Collection: Key words ,


This paper provides a sketch of the assumptions, values, frameworks and techniques that currently characterise linguistic ethnography, and in keeping with the dynamic that makes it such a productive and appealing perspective, we will ground our account in a series of historical, institutional and/or methodological encounters, looking at the questions and possibilities that these interactions generate. So we will consider the relationships between:
* linguistics and ethnography
* elements interacting in the communicative process
* linguistic ethnography and researchers from different disciplines
* linguistic ethnography and non-academic professionals
