SIL Electronic Survey Reports

SIL Electronic Survey Reports (SILESR) is a serial publication of SIL International (Dallas, Texas). The series publishes reports on sociolinguistic surveys carried out by SIL field members and others. These survey reports provide information for language development decisions. They are usually preliminary work papers and not presented as polished research. They are based on field notes and are in some cases the work of young sociolinguists with minimal training. Unless otherwise noted, a qualified reviewer (see the Masthead for a list of the consulting editors) will have approved the adequacy of the work. For more information, see About SILESR.
