Dear Linguists,
The European Science Foundation (ESF) is proposing a new initiative
entitled BABEL--Better Analyses Based on Endangered Languages. The intent
is to bring endangered language data to bear on theoretical issues. The
grant mechanism will be collaborative research involving at least three
countries in the ESF network. The US National Science Foundation has made
a firm commitment to BABEL, so projects can have a US institution as one of
the partners. The final list of other funders will be available in mid
March at the website below.
New field work is envisioned as part of this initiative, but the direct
relation to theoretical debates is also expected.
The initiative is still in the approval stage, but it is worth thinking
about it given that the timing (if it is approved) will be quite tight.
Preproposals will be due in May, 2008, and full proposals (which must have
a corresponding preproposal) in September. For a preview of the program,
please visit:


Potential US applicants can ask further information of:
Doug Whalen (dwhalennsf.gov)
