We are seeking linguistic consultants to assist with coding of data in several Iranian and Indo-Aryan languages (listed above) for the Evolution of Semantic Systems project initiated by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and Centre for Language Studies, Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. If you are a native speaker of any of these languages or have experience with linguistics in these languages, we would love to hear from you!
For this project, naming data was collected across several semantic domains (colors, body parts, spatial relations, and containers). These data were audio recorded and transcribed into coding sheets, and are now being checked and coded. We are looking for a consultant on each of these languages who could help us validate the transcriptions of our data against the audio recordings and assist in standardization of the data. You would:
- Check the transcribed responses against those on the original audio recordings
- Adjust the coding where it is inconsistent with the audio recordings
- Aid in basic translation and coding of responses
The position is paid at €15 per hour for up to a maximum of 40 hours and we are looking for someone who is detail-oriented, precise, and will be available for ongoing consultation as necessary over a period of approximately two months. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*For the languages Fars and Gahrwali, audio recordings have not yet been transcribed, and we are seeking a consultant to both transcribe the raw data and assist in the coding process described above. This position is paid at €15 per hour and may extend beyond 40 hours as necessary.
