Endangered Languages Technology Site

A new site was put up two days ago titled “Center for Endangered Language Technologies.” It is part of the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

The stated goal of CELT is “to aid the preservation, revitalization, documentation and other activities related to Endangered Languages through the use of novel accessible language technologies.”

This sounds like it will be a very exciting program!

    Does not seem to be much information about them, such as the languages which they will be including.

    Thanks for the comment, Linear Fix.

    The CELT site is only two days old, but it sounds like an interesting project. All four members have backgrounds in computational linguistics and at least three have backgrounds in endangered and/or lesser-used languages.

    Indigenous Tweets and the Language Geek (see links at right) are two great sites for tweeting and typing, but there is a lot of room for more computer support in endangered languages!
