Documenting Endangered Languages

This funding partnership between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) supports projects to develop and advance knowledge concerning endangered human languages.

Made urgent by the imminent death of roughly half of the approximately 7000 currently

used languages, this effort aims to exploit advances in information technology to build computational infrastructure for endangered language research.

The program supports projects that contribute to data management and archiving, and to the development of the next generation of researchers.

Funding can support fieldwork and other activities relevant to the digital recording, documenting, and archiving of endangered languages, including the preparation of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases.

Funding will be available in the form of one- to three-yearsenior researchgrants,fellowships from sixto twelve months, and conference proposals.

a conference proposal should generally be submitted at least a year in advance of the scheduled date of the conference.

For additional information about creating and submitting conference proposals to the DEL program, please refer to Chapter II.
