FAQ about endangered languages for the non-specialist.

"Every time I tell students in my classes about language death and language endangerment, they are surprised and shocked,
not only at the information itself, but that they had never heard about it before...
Students should have such basic knowledge about language change, language endangerment, and language death well before
they happen upon that information in a college classroom."

This site is meant to be a comprehensive web-resource for the benefit of the linguistic community at large, from those who
teach courses in field methods, endangered languages, and language revitalization, to those who do or wish to conduct
field research.

The site provides access to many of the field manuals produced by the
Language and Cognition Group at the Max Planck Institute for
Psycholinguistics. It contains a bonanza of material for the field
elicitation of semantics and the field collection of verbal behaviour. These
are unique resources that have been compiled over nearly twenty years of
investigation of under-studied languages.

On-line ressources on endangered languages

  • OREL is a regularly updated library of 250 annotated and categorised links to websites for people interested in endangered language documentation and revitalisation.

The purpose of the Register of Good Practices in Language Preservation, a project of UNESCO's Endangered Languages Programme,
is to identify, document, and render visible as well as accessible past and current practices that have proven to be successful
in the protection of languages and language communities.
