Endangered languages and dictionaries: collaboration between academics, indigenous communities and NGOs

Trends indicating that more than half of the world's 6,800 languages will become extinct in the next 100 years have led to growing concern among linguists, anthropologists and language communities. Many of these languages may disappear without being adequately recorded. This seminar group will discuss issues relating to technology, revitalisation and collaboration in the making of dictionaries of endangered languages. By providing the opportunity for faculty and graduate students across linguistics, social anthropology, education and sociology to meet with indigenous communities and non-governmental organisations, the project aims to build capacity and identify new research opportunities in language documentation.
