Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages
The mission of the Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages is to promote the documentation, maintenance, preservation, and revitalization of endangered languages worldwide through linguist-aided, community-driven multi-media language documentation projects.Projects begin with expeditions to communities to dialogue with last speakers of endangered languages worldwide. After we obtain the permission of the community to work with them, we discuss various courses of action to help them meet their own goals of maintenance, revitalization, etc. program. Story books, basic literacy materials as well as grammatical and lexical materials in electronic and print form may be produced. We publish our scientific work in leading journals and in books and archive our video for the use of future generations.
