    Sammanfattning : This work (a) presents a novel questionnaire for eliciting comparatives and superlatives of quality and quantity; (b) suggests guidelines for creating visual elicitation stimuli, as well as practical implications for semantic fieldworkers; (c) reports on a case study comparing two visual elicitation methods in semantic fieldwork, storyboards and picture-aided translation, showing that picture-aided translation might work better than storyboards for some purposes; (d) reports the results of comparing two different stories (the ‘What Matters’ story, developed in the project, and the ‘Bake-off’ story from Totem Field Storyboards) in semantic fieldwork; and (e) presents results of studying the morphosyntactic strategies for expressing superlatives of quantity and quality, comparatives, definiteness, and absolute, relative and proportional readings in Persian.Storyboards are a series of pictures which tell a story, and the participants are invited to tell the story in their native language, based on the pictures.
