Fieldwork and Research
SIL's field linguists work in partnership with native speakers. Together they engage in the collection, analysis, and organization of language data.
We offer training in cooperation with universities in various countries of the world. The linguistics courses offered are both theoretical and applied, but with a focus on applied.
Resources for Doing Linguistics
SIL produces resources to help fieldworkers and researchers carry out their linguistic analyses; these include textbooks, reference material, software and fonts.
