I have a funny picture to post for extra credit now! :D Well, OK, it may not seem very funny now that this whole deal is over, but I still can't think of any picture online that's made me laugh harder than . (I also just noticed the one person in that picture holding a sign that says "Vote Leave").

Well, okay, I technically haven't done fieldwork before, but learning Malayalam honestly has been a lot like fieldwork. :D

Maybe speaking with my girlfriend and taking notes for my Creole-French French-Creole dictionary counts as fieldwork?

Fieldwork is a continuum: you guys are on the starting end, and can eventually work your way to the other end. Which is wandering the mountains of Papua New Guinea armed with nothing but a notebook. Someday, grasshoppers...

Ah, so everyone lied to me when they said Indiana Jones I and III were unrealistic (II and IV are never mentioned, as I deny their existence).

Author:  Vijay [ Sat Jul 09, 2016 3:03 am ]
Post subject:  Re: ZBB Census 2016

Yeah, come on, Indians don't eat beetles and eyeball soup! And I didn't even know there was a IV. :P

I have to admit, though, I never stopped finding it hilarious that in II, Indiana Jones was basically looking for the Hindu god of destruction's penis, and they conveniently neglected to mention that little detail. :D

Author:  mèþru [ Sat Jul 09, 2016 10:35 am ]
Post subject:  Re: ZBB Census 2016

Well, between II portraying a major and revered Hindu god as an evil being demanding human sacrifice and the bit with the dinner, I do not feel comfortable with that film. Also, since it takes place before I, Indy should know better about supernatural objects existing, so it kind of causes a canon inconsistency.
IV is Indian Jones and the Crystal Ball, and fans says that it is to Indiana Jones what the prequel trilogy was to Star Wars. It features aliens, ridiculously giant ants, an Australian faking a Russian accent and a wedding.

Not sure whether it's fieldy-enough work to count, but as far as high-risk linguistics go, I've been the target of death threats and a casual rifle potshot -- along with the language speakers who brought me on look at documenting/revitalizing their language. It turns out a lot of white boys were really angry that they decided to let their language go, when it 'belongs to humanity', i.e., to white boys.

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear that. But yeah, I used to work on Romani, and no matter what you say about Romani, there's bound to be someone out there who wants to kill you for saying it.

Post subject:  Re: ZBB Census 2016

I haven't done fieldwork (I barely know linguistics and am learning it purely for conlanging), but I can imagine that working on languages of hated ethnicities could get you in trouble with their haters.

Author:  Vijay [ Sun Jul 10, 2016 12:25 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: ZBB Census 2016

It can get you in trouble with like everybody. It can get you in trouble with their haters because they hate people doing anything remotely nice for them. It can get you in trouble with the people themselves because how are they supposed to know what your motivations are for documenting their language (and in particular, whether it will benefit them, hurt them, or neither)? It can get you in trouble with funding agencies because they don't get why it's important. It can get you in trouble with fellow colleagues because of politics within academia...so yeah.

Author:  mèþru [ Sun Jul 10, 2016 12:55 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: ZBB Census 2016

Getting in trouble with academia due to academia politics is a given no matter what you do. Funding agencies for the sciences and parasciences (by which I mean psychology, linguistics and etc., not astrology) always don't understand what they fund. I never considered that the people don't want their language documented.
