The papers in this special publication are the result of presentations and follow-up dialogue on emergent and alternative methods to documenting variation in endangered, minority, or otherwise under-represented languages. Recent decades have seen a burgeoning interest in many aspects of language documentation and field linguistics (Chelliah & de Reuse 2010, Crowley & Thieberger 2007, Gippert et al 2006, Grenoble 2010, Newman & Ratliff 2001, Sakel & Everett 2012, Woodbury 2011).1 There is also a great deal of material dealing with language variation in major languages (Bassiouney 2009, Eckert 2000, Eckert & Rickford 2001, Hinskens 2005, Labov 1972a, 1972b, 1994, 2001, 2006, 2012, Murray & Simon 2006, Wolfram & Schilling-Estes 2005).
