The Fieldwork Lab provides a range of resources for the many Berkeley faculty, students, and postdoctoral scholars carrying out research with linguistic consultants, and for processing data that results from such work. These include a dedicated room for working with consultants, which is supplied with recording equipment, and a separate data processing room equipped with PC and Mac computers on which are installed a suite of applications useful for language documentation and analysis. Berkeley-affiliated faculty and students interested in working in the Fieldwork Lab or checking out recording equipment (for use in the Bay Area only) should contact Peter Jenks or Lev Michael.
