Citizen Science Projects

Citizen science projects of members of the URPP

Linguistic research largely rests on data collected in fieldwork and experiments. Linguists are dependent on the participation of sources willingly providing information about questions linguists want to answer. In the following you find more information about linguistic Citizen Science projects that have been developed by members of the URPP Language and Space:
