Fieldwork- What Do You Wish You’d Known?

Attention, Field Linguists! What do you wish you had known before you’d started your fieldwork? Last week, dozens of ELDP grant applicants submitted their applications and will be going on fieldwork in the second half of this year and next year. What advice do you wish you had received before going on your first field trip? Comment on this post to share your experiences, with the name and location of the language you are researching! We will be compiling the answers we receive in a later post!
