Title:Ethnophysiogeography: Documenting categories of landscape features
Bibliographic Citation:Mark, David M., Mark, David M.; 2013-03-02; The landscape is an important domain of human experience and activity. Ethnophysioraphy seeks to document the folk taxonomy and terminology for landscape features and components, as well as other cultural connections to land and landscape, including topophilia and sense of place. By landscape, we mean the larger components of the human environment, composed of very large features and places--features such as mountains, rivers, valleys, and forests. Voegelin and Voegelin (1957) recognized topography as a fundamental domain for language documentation. Ethnophysiography also includes landscape-scale water and vegetation features. Documenting linguistic aspects of the landscape domain is especially complicated because the landscape has few bona fide objects; rather, features are extracted from a continuous landscape in ways that themselves may vary across cultures and language. The use of ontological principles to clarify feature extraction and classification will be discussed.; Kaipuleohone University of Hawai'i Digital Language Archive;http://hdl.handle.net/10125/26196.
