I subscribe to the Library Link of the Day, and today’s offering was titled “Google fights to save 3,054 dying languages.”
The Endangered Languages Project is “is 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.”
With a world map covered in dots to indictate each recorded endangered langauge, you are able to investigate the state of the language, view word lists, langauge metadata, and add information too.
The link from New Zealand included documents from The Alexander Turnball Library collection.
This could be a facinating site to use with ESOL students, and also useful for country and culture studies that are sure to pop up during the Olympics.
