    This paper discusses issues related to linguistic fieldwork with a concentration on a study of grammar. The author proposes three methods in studying grammar: using questionnaires, eliciting linguistic data, and collecting texts. These three methods need to be used together. Relying only on one method is not sufficient enough to help us grasp the grammatical system of the language under study. In addition, the author uses two specific approches in studying grammar. They are functional approach and dialogic approach. Examples and reflections are from the author's experience with research on Tibetan, especially Rgyalthang, an eastern dialect spoken in Zhongdian County, Diqin Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, N.W. Yunnan, People's Republic of China. less
