    • Historical information: This collection consists of materials produced by students of the graduate-level field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley between August 2007 and May 2008. The course was taught by professors Alice Gaby, and the language consultant was Ni Luai Thang. All other listed contributors were students in the course.
    • Scope and content: Sound recordings of elicitation and texts, transcriptions, student assignments, palatography photos. The collection is organized into four series: Series I, sound recordings of in-class and small-group elicitation sessions, arranged chronologically (many with transcriptions in .trs files openable in Transcriber); Series II, interlinear texts (an assignment for each student); Series III, remaining student assignments; and Series IV, palatography photos from Dominic Yu's class project. Most file bundles containing sound recordings contain content descriptions based on metadata spreadsheets maintained by each student in the course; descriptive content was populated by Berkeley undergraduate student Ellis Miller. Initials in file names and elsewhere are initials of contributors.
