Endangered Language Resource Center


Endangered Language Resource Center

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.
