The series Sulang Language Data and Working Papers: Word Lists is published by Sulawesi Language Alliance. The aim of this series is to make word list data available to the general public. For accurate definitions of native words, dictionaries are preferable over word lists. Nonetheless word lists have proven their utility when the purpose is to compare languages and dialects with each other.
The standard word list developed and used by Sulawesi Language Alliance is the Sulawesi Long List, comprising just over eight hundred items. To foster accuracy, this word list includes a set of elicitation aids in the form of annotations and photographs. However, we also accept for publication word lists of other lengths and arrangement of items. To submit a word list or a set of word lists for inclusion in this series, see our guidelines on how to submit a resource.
Word lists are published ‘as is,’ in the same way that we have received them. The accuracy of responses and transcriptions are the responsibility of word list takers, and may vary depending on the researcher and the field conditions under which responses were elicited.
Papers in this series are posted as PDF files. PDF files can be viewed or printed using the free Adobe Reader.
