Google Launches Endangered Language Project Website

Yesterday Google, in conjunction with a committee of language experts called the Alliance for Linguistic Development, launced the Google Endangered Language Project website. The site’s home page describes itself as “an online resource to record, access, and share samples of, and research on, endangered languages, as well as to share advice and best practices for those working to document or strengthen languages under threat.”

A number of American Indian and First Nations languages are represented on the site, and language activists are excited about the potential the site holds for sharing language resources. Check out a video describing the Project below, and then head over to the site at http://www.endangeredlanguages.com/ to check it out for yourself.
