Dr. Sadaf Munshi

As the Principal Investigator of this project, Dr. Munshi has conducted the overall management of this project, coordinating and conducting fieldwork in Yasin, Hunza, Nagar and Srinagar. Over the past several years (starting from 2003), Munshi has conducted intensive linguistic fieldwork (13-15 months, 7 fieldtrips) with native speakers of Burushaski in India (Srinagar), Pakistan (Gilgit) and in the United States (Austin, Houston, and New Jersey). She has collected a corpus of linguistic data in various dialects which include: audio and video recordings of popular stories and legends, personal narratives, historical accounts, natural conversations, songs, poems, and hundreds of pages of hand-written field notes (excluding data transcriptions). A significant amount of these data have been digitized, transcribed, translated and linguistically analyzed.
