Documenting Arapaho Linguistic Culture


ACLS Fellowship Program


Linguistics and French and Italian


This project's central component is the creation of a video-based database of Arapaho conversation, using the ELAN linguistic software developed by the Max Plank Institute. The database employs extensive linguistic and anthropological labeling and annotation. Complementary to this project is ethnographic research on Arapaho language behavior, both to support database annotation and analysis, and also to produce a book on Arapaho linguistic culture more generally.
