Endangered Languages Information

and Infrastructure Workshop

Welcome to ELIIP

The Endangered Languages Information and Infrastructure workshop is designed as the first step in a larger project, which is intended to produce an authoritative catalogue, database, and updatable website of information on endangered languages and enrich the infrastructure of the discipline by integrating accurate EL information into a network of digital information and research facilities. This workshop has been convened in order to plan the project and to promote productive discussion among major scholars about key questions involved in the collection and dissemination of information about endangered languages.

ELIIP Sponsors

The workshop is sponsored jointly by the University of Utah, through the Center for American Indian Languages (CAIL), and Eastern Michigan University, through the Institute for Language Information and Technology (home of The LINGUIST List).  Funding was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
