From the reviews:"The content of this book is also unique for several reasons... The depth of bibliographic coverage is simply impressive... This is an essential text for an fieldworker's collection." (Daniel Hieber, LinguistList, August 2011)"The Handbook of Descriptive Linguistic Fieldwork is a manual for linguists ... who travel to the `field' to obtain data about a language other than their own. ... this is a very useful book. Some areas of the book's production, namely in its design and layout, deserve mention. ... Overall, this is a valuable addition to the literature on fieldwork, and one that provides a useful resource for new fieldworkers negotiating the maze of field preparation and logistics." (Claire Bowern, Language Documentation & Conservation, Vol. 6, 2012)
