From: Angela Bartens <Angela.Bartenshelsinki.fi>
Subject: Round Table/Pidgins & Creoles, Education, Lang Planning

Dear fellow list members,

I am hoping to participate in the following meeting LING��STICA 2001
CONFERENCIA CIENT�FICA INTERNACIONAL organized by the Instituto de
Literatura y Ling��stica "Jos� Antonio PortuondoValdor" (La Habana,
Cuba) and to be held Nov. 25 - 27, 2001.

I have announced a paper titled

Contacto y interferencia ling��sticas en San Andr�s
Islas, Colombia: hacia una gramatica contrastiva Islander - ingl�s
estandard - espa^nol.

Apparently, there is also the possibility of organizing a round table
and I am wondering if anyone would be interested in one on Pidgins and
creoles/minority languages, educational issues and/or language planning.

Please get in touch with me directly at

Message 2: Endangered Language Fund Grants

Date: Mon, 15 Jan 2001 16:26:41 -0500
From: Doug Whalen <whalenalvin.haskins.yale.edu>
Subject: Endangered Language Fund Grants

 Dear Listers,
 The Endangered Language Fund is pleased to announce our grant 
program for 2001. Below is our Request for Proposals, which gives 
complete information on how to apply for a grant. Please pass this 
along to interested parties who may not be on the list.
 The ELF is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to the 
maintenance and documentation of endangered languages. Our grant 
program is made possible by the generosity of our members. All 
readers are invited to become members of ELF. Contact the address 
given below.
 Doug Whalen DhW, President

 REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS, 2001
Endangered Language Fund

 The Endangered Language Fund provides grants for
language maintenance and linguistic field work. The work most
likely to be funded is that which serves both the native community
and the field of linguistics. Work which has immediate applicability
to one group and more distant application to the other will also be
considered. Publishing subventions are a low priority, although
they will be considered. The language involved must be in danger
of disappearing within a generation or two. Endangerment is a
continuum, and the location on the continuum is one factor in our
funding decisions.
 Eligible expenses include consultant fees, tapes, films,
travel, etc. Grants are normally for one year periods, though
extensions may be applied for. We expect grants in this round to be
less than $4,000 in size.

NOTE: At least two awards will be made for work on
languages in the state of OKLAHOMA. Language communities there
and researchers working on those languages are particularly
encouraged to apply.

 HOW TO APPLY
 There is no form, but the information requested below
should be printed (on one side only) and FOUR COPIES sent to:
 The Endangered Language Fund
 Dept. of Linguistics
 Yale University
 P. O. Box 208236
 New Haven, CT 06520-8236
 USA
The street address for express mail services is:
 The Endangered Language Fund
 Department of Linguistics
 320 York Street
 Yale University
 New Haven, CT 06520
Applications must be mailed in. No e-mail or fax
applications will be accepted. Please note that regular mail,
especially from abroad, can take up to four weeks. If you have any
questions, please write to the same address or email to:
elfhaskins.yale.edu

REQUIRED INFORMATION:
COVER PAGE:
The first page should contain:
TITLE OF THE PROJECT
NAME OF LANGUAGE AND COUNTRY IN WHICH IT IS
SPOKEN
NAME OF PRIMARY RESEARCHER
ADDRESS OF PRIMARY RESEARCHER (include phone
and email if possible.)
SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER (if U.S. citizen)
PLACE AND DATE OF BIRTH
PRESENT POSITION, EDUCATION, AND NATIVE
LANGUAGE(S).
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AND/OR PUBLICATIONS
THAT ARE RELEVANT.
Include the same information for collaborating researchers if
any. This information may continue on the next page.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
Beginning on a separate page, provide a description of the
project. This should normally take two pages, single spaced, but
the maximum is five pages. Be detailed about the type of material
that is to be collected and/or produced, and the value it will have to
the native community (including relatives and descendants who do
not speak the language) and to linguistic science. Give a brief
description of the state of endangerment of the language in question.

BUDGET:
On a separate page, prepare an itemized budget that lists
expected costs for the project. Estimates are acceptable, but they
must be realistic. Please translate the amounts into US dollars. List
other sources of support you are currently receiving or expect to
receive and other applications that relate to the current one.

LETTER OF SUPPORT:
Two letters of support are recommended, but not required.
Note that these letters, if sent separately, must arrive on or before
the deadline (April 20th, 2000) in order to be considered. If more
than two letters are sent, only the first two received will be read.

LIMIT TO ONE PROPOSAL
A researcher can be primary researcher on only one
proposal.

DEADLINE
Applications must be received by APRIL 20th, 2001.
Decisions will be delivered by the end of May, 2001.

ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RECEIPT
Receipt of application will be made by email if an email
address is given. Otherwise, the applicant must include a self-
addressed post-card in order to receive the acknowledgment.

IF A GRANT IS AWARDED
Before receiving any funds, university-based applicants
must show that they have met the requirements of their university's
human subjects' committee. Tribal- or other-based applicants must
provide equivalent assurance that proper protocols are being used.
If a grant is made and accepted, the recipient is required to
provide the Endangered Language Fund with a short formal report
of the project and to provide the Fund with copies of all audio and
video recordings made with ELF funds, accompanying
transcriptions, as well as publications resulting from materials
obtained with the assistance of the grant.
