3L Summer School 2010

The 3L Consortium (comprising Lyon, Leiden and London (SOAS) Universities) has been running an annual series of international summer schools on language documentation and description. The first was held in Lyon in 2008, and the second was in London in 2009.
This year the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (LUCL) will host the third 3L International Summer School on Language Documentation and Description from 5th to 17th July 2010. Registration for the Summer School is now open, and information on the program, courses, instructors, and more, is available on the website.
The 3L Summer School offers a variety of courses on aspects of language documentation and description for both current and novice field linguists. Courses cover both practical and typological issues and include:

  • Practical training in fieldwork methods and grammar writing
  • Recording techniques and software for documentation, description and archiving
  • In-depth courses on specific areas such as negation, tone, and kinship terminology
  • The documentation of endangered sign Languages
  • Courses investigating various aspects of languages found in Central and South America, Indonesia, Africa, and the Caucasus

A Student Conference will be held during the Summer School on 10th July 2010, giving students an opportunity to present their ideas or research and receive feedback from their instructors and peers.
The 3L Summer School draws upon the extensive expertise of the three paricipating universities in the 3L Consortium: DDL Laboratory, University of Lyon-2, Leiden University Centre for Linguistics and the Endangered Languages Academic Programme, School of Oriental and African Studies, London.
The 3L Summer School in 2010 will be followed by the Leiden Summer School in Languages and Linguistics, which will take place from 19th to 31st July.
