Protolinguist Master Post
This is a round-up of the key posts in my protolinguist series, a series with resources and advice for people who are interested in linguistics and trying to teach themselves more about it, now all in one convenient location.
The original protolinguist post that started it all: Protolinguistics: 6 ways to do linguistics in high school
More background on how I started using the term protolinguist, and an invitation to adopt it if you feel like it applies to you: What and who is a protolinguist?
The protolinguist resources series, which contain tons of links from around the internet for teaching yourself…
- Corpus linguistics (includes: sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, typology, and language documentation/revitalization/fieldwork)
- Experimental linguistics (includes: psycholinguistics, cognitive science, first and second language acquisition, computational linguistics, and statistics for linguists)
- Descriptive grammar
- Philosophy of language and linguistic anthropology
The results of a survey that I did on when people became interested in linguistics, what areas they were interested in, and more: What does a protolinguist look like?
For the socially inclined, where to find linguists elsewhere on the internet.
I continue to tag posts intermittently with #protolinguist when I think they might be useful to learners, so you can also check out the protolinguist tag on my blog (this will catch reblogs) or on tumblr in general (this will catch other people who may be using the tag).
