Linguistic Fieldwork

The Stanford Department of Linguistics prides itself in supporting a diversity of linguistic research projects that are grounded in fieldwork.

A major unifying thread in the department’s fieldwork activities is Voices of California — a collaborative effort by faculty and students in the Department of Linguistics. This project documents dialects of English across the social and geographic diversity of California. Yearly group field trips to California’s rural areas provide fieldwork training and experience, and a growing corpus of over 800 sociolinguistic interviews, available for department members’ research.
