About Field Notes

Field Notes is a podcast about linguistic fieldwork hosted by Martha Tsutsui Billins. Field Notes aims to share the stories of linguists doing fieldwork to document, describe, and understand how languages (particularly under-described and under-documented languages) work!

Support for Field Notes helps to produce ad-free and high-quality content in the form of a free platform where early-career researchers can learn, discuss challenges, and share experiences from the field.

Thank you for your support!
