Oregon Public Broadcasting recently aired a radio interview with Alfred
'Bud' Lane III about efforts to preserve the Athabaskan language of the
Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (Siletz Tribal Language Project,
www.siletzlanguage.org). The interview focused on the Siletz Talking
Dictionary, an online collection of recorded words and phrases
(http://siletz.swarthmore.edu/), and on the role of technology in preserving
endangered languages.

The interview is available at
http://www.opb.org/thinkoutloud/shows/saving-siletz-language/ and can
be either streamed or downloaded in mp3 format. The interview itself is
about 13 minutes long, and it begins about 30 seconds into the segment.

Linguistic Field(s): Lexicography
