Iain Walker <iainw@SUE.ECON.SU.OZ.AU> asked about learning
undocumented languages. The following book is a good general introduction:
Burling, Robbins. 1984. Learning a field language. Ann Arbor: University of
Michigan Press.
It has references to various other works such as those made & used
by missionaries. I'd be interested to hear about other things, too.
