CH-50421-07Challenge Programs: Challenge GrantsAmerican Musicological Society, Inc.Publishing Musicologal Research in the 21st Century12/1/2005 - 7/31/2011$240,000.00AnneW.Robertson   American Musicological Society, Inc.New YorkNY10012-1502USA2006Music History and CriticismChallenge GrantsChallenge Programs02400000240000

Endowment for publication subventions and an award program in musicology as well as fund-raising costs.

The American Musicological Society seeks an NEH challenge grant of $240,000, which with a 4:1 match will yield $1,200,000. These funds will endow four publication-related initiatives of the Society. The bulk of the funds ($900,000) will create a new subvention supporting the publication of first books by young scholars, whose work often represents the cutting edge of scholarly research, but whose careers are often at their most fragile or challenging point. The remainder will go primarily to existing publication subvention programs, supporting musicological books more generally ($125,000) as well as a monograph series sponsored by the Society ($100,000). These subventions aim to optimize the quality of the best scholarly books on music while keeping their prices affordable. Finally, we propose a new award for books on music in American culture ($50,000), a vital area of musical research that appeals to the broadest literary and musical public.

Fieldwork and research to create a dictionary of Cahto (Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit), a dormant Native American language of Medocino County, California.

This Language Description and Infrastructure project will create the first dictionary of the Cahto (Kato) language of Mendocino County, California (Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit family). This dictionary will be made available in printable electronic formats; through a searchable online Webonary interface; and as an Android app. The project will build on the applicant's previous work that has focused on building a comprehensive database of lexical forms from the published and unpublished resources on the language, enriched where possible with forms given by living rememberers. This fellowship would support the reworking of the existing database into headwords in a standard practical orthography, further editing the entries, and the editing of front and back matter. The proposed dictionary will include as appendices a listing by semantic categories and a morpheme list cross-referenced to the scholarly literature on Proto-Athabaskan and Proto-California-Athabaskan. A printable dictionary of the Cahto language, useful to tribal language learners, regional historians, and scholars alike, is the goal of this fellowship. (Edited by staff)

The compilation of the fifth and sixth volumes of the "Dictionary of American Regional English" (DARE), which documents geographical differences in the vocabulary, pronunciation, and morphology of American English.

The Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) is a reference work describing regional and folk varieties of American English. Based on a large body of oral data collected in all fifty states from 1965 to 1970, it also draws on thousands of written and electronic sources covering the colonial period to the present time. A unique feature of DARE is its use of computer-generated maps to show distributions of regional terms. Volumes I (A?C), II (D?H), III (I?O), and IV (P?Sk), published by Harvard University Press in 1985, 1991, 1996, and 2002, respectively, have been highly acclaimed by scholars and public alike. Volume V (Sl?Z) is expected to appear in 2009, with a supplementary volume of data thereafter. Preparations for an electronic edition are being made now, with publication to follow the print edition. DARE?s materials will remain available for scholars both in electronic form and through the maintenance of an archive of research and reference materials.

Development of a Web-based survey instrument and methodology to conduct new fieldwork on American regional English. The survey would include large parts of the original questionnaire used for compiling the "Dictionary of American Regional English" (DARE) plus questions designed to reflect changes since the 1960s. The results of a pilot survey for Wisconsin would be used to adjust the methodology before undertaking nationwide fieldwork.

Publication of Volume V of DARE was a huge milestone, but not the end of the work, for American English has changed greatly in the last 50 years. DARE proposes to initiate new fieldwork, from July 2013 to June 2015, to track those changes. Using Wisconsin as a pilot, the project will develop a web-based survey to gather the data. Based on the results, adjustments will be made to the methodology before a nationwide survey is attempted. The research will include large parts of the original Questionnaire plus questions designed to reflect societal changes since the 1960s. The original 22 DARE communities and 18 new ones, representing the current state population, will be surveyed. The web based survey will be designed by the UW Survey Center. It will also include a telephone interview with free conversation, the reading of a story, and a word list designed to elicit pronunciation variants. DARE will analyze the data and make changes to the methodology before initiating a nationwide study.
