Paul Foulkes

University of York, UK

This session discusses fieldwork strategies developed mainly for dialectological and sociolinguistic research on varieties of English. Issues in sampling the community and the language are explored. Adaptations of traditional methods for work with children are also outlined. Finally, a brief assessment is made of the implications of these types of fieldwork for linguistic phonetics.
