A typological study of the areal lexicon of mainland Southeast Asia (2019.04-2022.03)
About the Project
Project term: April, 2019–March, 2022
This project, which involves the collaboration of researchers studying minority languages across mainland Southeast Asia, is a typologically oriented study toward understanding the areal lexicon of mainland Southeast Asia. This study aims to provide a new description of typologically interesting lexical features in the region, including folk taxonomy, color, and kinship terms, fine distinctions in certain semantic domains, elaborate expressions, psycho-collocations, etc. The research attempts to contribute to lexical typology, areal, and contact linguistics, ethnobiology, and a compilation of a new linguistic questionnaire specified for use in mainland Southeast Asian linguistics.
