Message 1: Corpora of Minority Languages - make your needs known

Subject: Corpora of Minority Languages - make your needs known

The Department of Linguistics at Lancaster is currently engaged in work
aimed at establishing the needs of the language engineers and linguists
with regard to corpus building in non-indigenous minority languages in
Europe (e.g. Chinese, Vietnamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Panjabi, Urdu,
Hindi, Sinhala, Sylheti etc). We have developed a short
web-questionnaire to assess such needs. The answers will be anonymised
and eventually form part of a report which we are happy to send, free
of charge, to all who participate in the survey.

Even if you are not working with these languages, we'd like you to fill
in the questionnaire with an eye to future possible work in this area.
The questionnaire is at:

Sorry if you receive this more than once!
