5th ZADAR LINGUISTIC FORUM
Language Documentation and the Treatment of Spoken Language
March 21-24, 2018, Zadar, Croatia
The Department of Linguistics at the University of Zadar hosts another event dedicated to some crucial topics in the domain of Language Studies. The 5th ZADAR LINGUISTIC FORUM: Language Documentation and the Treatment of Spoken Language consists of a doctoral conference and a spring school, which will be held from the 21st to the 24th March 2018. This four-day event will be focused on language documentation and on the elaboration of spoken language data with special emphasis on methodologies and tools used in this domain.
Language endangerment is a well-known issue and the disappearance of many undocumented languages is a loss that many scholars of different domains have denounced. Less dramatic but nonetheless urgent is the need to consider spoken language as crucial in achieving better understanding of linguistic phenomena related to discourse and to the emergence of grammatical features. Language documentation and, more generally, the ability to gather, manage and analyse spoken language are two areas which display an increasing importance in applied linguistics and linguistics in general: they are at the core of this spring school and PhD conference.
The doctoral conference will open the event on the 21st March. Doctoral students are invited to submit abstracts for participating at the conference on subjects including, but not limited to the topics of language documentation and of spoken language research.
A 3-day training school will follow the conference from the 22nd to the 24th March. It will provide a unique opportunity for participants to get acquainted with some basic software used in language documentation and get some practical hands-on experience on how to collect, record, transcribe, and analyze spoken data. Experienced researchers working on language documentation and on the treatment of spoken language will be in charge of three courses that will guide the participants through the first steps in the use of several tools for the acquisition, treatment and management of spoken language data with a special attention to the issues connected to language documentation. The event is thus aimed at doctoral students of linguistics and related disciplines (Croatian and Slavic Studies, English Studies, German Studies, Italian Studies, etc.), doctoral researchers who investigate different aspects of language and young researchers, but graduate students interested in language documentation are also encouraged to apply.

COURSES

Vincenzo Galatà, Ph.D. (ISTC-CNR, Padua & MARCS, Western Sydney University)
Best practices in language documentation: designing, building and managing your corpus of spoken data
Contrary to a common belief, building a corpus for spoken language documentation and research is a time-consuming and costly work that goes far beyond the “simple” collection of a certain number of recordings. Indeed, the construction of a corpus of spoken data opens up a myriad of options from which the researcher can choose, and there are many variables at play during the whole process of corpus design, collection, acoustic elaboration and management of the data. In this course we will address, and learn how to deal with, the different aspects of this process also with hands-on sessions involving the use of open-source software.

Eugenio Goria, Ph.D. (University of Bologna)
The use of ELAN in language documentation: transcribing and annotating spoken corpora
This course will provide an introduction to the basic functions of ELAN and is conceived as a set of practical tutorials. Particular attention will be given to the typical issues arising at the first experience with the study of spoken language materials. At the end of the course, the participants will be able to use ELAN to: make a transcript, create a multi-level set of annotations, build a small corpus and perform various types of corpus searches.

Assistant professor Zvjezdana Vrzić (University of Rijeka)
Introduction to FLEx - software for language documentation
The workshop will present the possibilities and the use of the Fieldworks Language Explorer (FLEx), open-source software for creating dictionaries and interlinearizing texts. The participants will get to know how to make their own professional looking dictionaries, perform morphosyntactic text annotation and simply export lexical and text files into other software applications for language documentation and annotation.

APPLICATION AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

The participation to the meeting can follow two modalities:
        conference + training school;
        only training school.
The attendance of the training school is limited to 30 participants while the slots available for oral presentations at the conference on the first day will be a total of 15. The papers will be selected on the basis of two criteria: 1) quality of the proposal, and 2) relevance for the topic of the conference. After the selection, the authors whose paper is ranked after the first 15 on the basis of the aforementioned criteria will be invited to participate at a poster session.
Papers are formal presentations of original research, lasting a total of 20 minutes (15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion). Posters offer an opportunity for an individualized, more informal presentation and discussion of the research.
English and Croatian are official languages of the workshop. Authors should apply for presenting at the conference by submitting an abstract of their presentation. Abstract proposals (200 – 400 words) may be submitted either in English or in Croatian and English. Each presenter may submit only one abstract proposal, co-authored by one or more authors. Abstract proposals should be carefully checked and proofread. All accepted abstracts will be subsequently available in an electronic form.
Applicants for both the school and the conference should fill in the application form available at the Zadar Linguistic Forum website.
The deadline for abstract submission is December 31, 2017. Authors will receive a notification of acceptance no later than 31 January 2018. Registration of participants will be open from 1 February 2018 until 28 February 2018. A registration fee in the amount of 250 HRK (or 35 EUR) should be paid at the time of the registration and the payment receipt must be shown on the day of the conference. It will not be possible to pay the registration fee during the event itself. All information on the process of registration and payment will be available on-line. The fee includes training materials and coffee breaks. The use of a PC will be assured to the students attending the training school, but the use of one's own laptop is encouraged.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation that may be used at their home institutions for the assignment of ECTS credit.

What counts as Evidence in Applied Linguistics?

What constitutes evidence in science has been debated for centuries and some of the leading philosophers have written about it. In this presentation some first thoughts on what is evidence will be presented. A core issue is that in the humanities as opposed to mathematics, we have no proof, only evidence. Following the American philosopher of science Peter Aichinstein, it will be argued that ultimately what matters I whether there is ‘reason to believe’ that particular evidence supports a hypothesis or not. This will be illustrated using the examples three controversial issues: ‘The bilingual advantage’, ‘the role of the non-dominant hemisphere in bilingual processing and learning’, and ‘the effectiveness of early bilingual education’.

Ethical issues in language acquistion research

Ethics is considered an essential part of any valid research and it is generally defined as norms for conduct that distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. However, the mere existence of numerous official guidelines, in the form of steering documents, and regulatory bodies, such as ethics committees, suggests that there is more to ethics than common sense. There are many disagreements on what constitutes ethically appropriate behaviour in research and some of them are due to different interpretations of the same ethical principle concerning the specifics of a research field and methodology. The aim of this interactive presentation is to help young researchers deal with the ethical dilemmas they are likely to face in preparing and conducting research. Reflecting on ethical issues in the study of language, or multiple languages, we will take the most basic formal tool, informed consent, to introduce researchers to important ethical principles and methods in ethical decision-making. We will discuss issues related to doing research with children and tackle some ethical issues rarely discussed in language research such as deception, participants' voices, and linguistic realities. In the presentation we will use some real cases as examples of issues that may arise and the audience is invited to share their own issues and concerns.

The sociolingustic interview and language ideologies: variables and challanges

The sociolinguistic interview and participant observation (Labov 1984, Tagliamonte 2006) are classical fieldwork methods which nonetheless keep spurring researchers to critical (self-)reflection. This presentation will focus on some of the fieldwork challenges which arose during the author’s research into the bilingualism of a four-person Croatian immigrant family in Toronto, Canada. It will address the following issues: 1) how do we elicit a respondent’s ‘spontaneous’ production in the non-spontaneous interview situation with asymmetrical power relations, and how do we assess the role of the researcher as a factor which influences the respondent’s responses on several levels, 2) how much of the research design should we share with the respondent, considering its possible influence on their production, 3) how do we approach those results in which the respondent’s responses differ from what has been observed by the researcher, and 4) should we allow respondents to listen to the recorded material if they ask to? Since this type of research unavoidably makes the researcher part of the situation which is the object of their study, the decisions which they make about these issues will be reflected in the research results. Given that a respondent’s language ideologies are also a major factor in their language use, researchers cannot afford to neglect this integral part of language behaviour. Typical ideologies in the field include the ideology of the standard language (Milroy 2001), the monoglossic ideology (Wardhaugh & Fuller 2015) and the ideology of the native speaker (Doerr 2009). The second part of the presentation will give an overview of some of the (normative) ideologies which are taken for granted and perceived as ‘commonsensical’ by average speakers, sometimes even by professional linguists. As a result, important information about the field is omitted in linguistic descriptions, which is why it is essential that researchers reflect on their own language ideologies, often normalized as ‘neutral’, ‘scholarly’ views on language phenomena.

Data-driven linguistics: How to collect, process and analyse corpora

In this tutorial we will touch on the three main technical challenges in corpus linguistics: collecting (or borrowing) data for your corpus, processing the collected data with language technologies and analysing corpora with the tools available. In the first part we will consider two possible approaches: collecting your own data by crawling the web or using data dumps and APIs, or reusing data already collected by fellow researchers. In the data processing partwe will make acquaintance with available language technologies, their strengths and especially their weaknesses. Finally, in the analysis part we will primarily focus on the Sketch Engine tool for corpus search and analysis, but will touch on more potent methods such as statistical analysis, inference and data visualisation in R.

A Linguist's Foray into Statistics: How numbers help you discover what you want to know

This workshop will provide participants with an overview of most commonly used statistical methods in (applied) linguistic research. It will also include a demonstration of IBM SPSS software as well as examples of studies in which some of the methods were used. Drawing on the presenter's experience in discovering and learning about statistics, the workshop primarily aims at demystifying statistics and showing how it can be utilized as a useful tool in (applied) linguistic research.

4. ZADARSKI LINGVISTIČKI FORUM
Istraživačke metode u primijenjenoj lingvistici
9. i 10. lipnja 2017., Zadar, Hrvatska
DRUGA OBAVIJEST
Odjel za lingvistiku Sveučilišta u Zadru 9. i 10. lipnja 2017. godine organizira znanstvenu radionicu pod nazivom 4. ZADARSKI LINGVISTIČKI FORUM: Istraživačke metode u primijenjenoj lingvistici. Radionica je namijenjena doktorskim studentima lingvistike i srodnih studija (kroatistika, slavistika, anglistika, germanistika, talijanistika itd.), ali i ostalim doktorskim studentima koji se u svojim istraživanjima bave jezikom. Sudjelovati mogu i studenti diplomskih studija, koji svoja istraživanja mogu predstaviti samo u obliku postera.
Tijekom radionice sudionici će imati priliku slušati pozvana predavanja o metodama lingvističkih istraživanja kao i sudjelovati u radionicama o etičkim pitanjima u istraživanjima te o pretraživanju lingvističke literature. Sudionici će moći izložiti teme svojih disertacija ili prikazati jedno od svojih istraživanja te s iskusnim istraživačima raspravljati o metodološkim problemima s kojima su se susreli tijekom svojih istraživanja. Dobrodošla su izlaganja u kojima se primjenjuju neke od istraživačkih metoda – ankete, eksperimenti, studije slučaja, etnografska istraživanja, akcijska istraživanja i ostali pristupi.
Poseban naglasak bit će na metodologiji istraživanja u primijenjenoj lingvistici – tj. na metodologiji istraživanja dvojezičnosti i višejezičnosti, usvajanja prvog, drugog i trećeg jezika, pedagogije jezika, jezičnog planiranja i jezičnih politika, analize diskursa – područjima koja su posebno zanimljiva mnogim doktorandima.
