Students work under guidance with a native speaker of a previously undescribed language, learning how to analyse a language from scratch, preparing and archiving descriptive materials, and writing papers on some aspects of the grammar (syntax, phonology, lexicon). Instruction is given in the methodology of  linguistic fieldwork, including analysis and organisation of data, and the social dimensions of work with speakers of minority languages. The elicitation and analysis will deepen the understanding and skills which students have acquired in their earlier coursework.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
