Dr. Jocelyn Aznar is a researcher in the BMBF joint project QUEST - Quality - Established: Testing and application of curation criteria and quality standards for audiovisual annotated language data / Research Area 3 'Syntax & Lexicon'.

His PhD was an ethnolinguistic description of Nisvai narratives, a previously undocumented oral language of Vanuatu, Oceania. The study relied on participant observation and annotation interviews during the fieldwork as well as Data Processing and Visualization of the corpus back at the office. Based on these experiences, he now develops and tests quality assurance procedures for the creation and curation of annotated, audiovisual fieldwork corpora to maximise their potential for secondary use in cross-linguistic studies. This involves a comparative study on direct speech.
