Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation

Meeting Description:

The Netherlands is a leading place where languages with different degrees
of vitality from all parts of the world are being documented, described and
theorized about. However, this vast resource for the humanities, social and
cognitive sciences has never been show-cased in one place before. To
round-off the Endangered Languages Programme (ELP), a funding initiative
of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), a two-day
international conference is being organized at Leiden University on April 8-
9, 2011, to provide a forum for putting this work on stage in conference
presentations as well as posters.
