ELIIP Workshop


Description:
The Endangered Languages Information and Infrastructure Workshop is designed as the first step in a larger project, which is intended to produce an authoritative catalogue, database, and updatable website of information on endangered languages and enrich the infrastructure of the discipline by integrating accurate endangered language information into a network of digital information and research facilities. The workshop will explore the possibility of the GOLD Ontology being a part of this network, with discussion about how to best collect information on the unique typological features of each language and the possibility of linking these features to the ontology in order to facilitate searching. This workshop has been convened in order to plan the project and to promote productive discussion among major scholars about key questions involved in the collection and dissemination of information about endangered languages.

The workshop is sponsored jointly by the University of Utah, through the Center for American Indian Languages (CAIL), and Eastern Michigan University, through the Institute for Language Information and Technology (home of The LINGUIST List). Funding was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
