The Endangered Language Resource Center will exist to
promote connections and enable research on indigenous/endangered languages
among interested groups and individuals. The Center will be available
to all people who need information or consultation about language revitalization.
The Resource Center is staffed by a PhD linguist whose job it is to coordinate
the operations of the entire MIT Indigenous Language Initiative and to
provide linguistic information to interested groups. The linguist is also
in charge of forging connections among community language programs, professional
linguists, and graduate students.
The center will also work to promote and enable research on indigenous/endangered
languages by MIT students and faculty.
