Semantic elicitation in the field: on managing data and conducting sessions
Keywords:semantics, fieldwork, elicitation, logistics, implementation
This paper is a report of personal research methodology. More specifically, it describes a few approaches I have developed and used in the course of investigating semantic topics via elicitation in the field. The first half deals with data for/from semantic elicitation: creating stimuli, handling variation in judgments, and keeping track of collected data. The second half focuses on working with consultants: finding them, training them, and conducting sessions.
