LOTZ, JOHN
THIS REPORT GIVES AN OVERVIEW OF THE ENTIRE ACLS (AMERICAN COUNCIL OF LEARNED SOCIETIES) PROGRAM OFFICIALLY KNOWN AS "RESEARCH AND STUDIES IN URALIC AND ALTAIC LANGUAGES" WHICH WAS ORGANIZED AND IMPLEMENTED BETWEEN 1959 AND L965 BY OVER 70 SCHOLARS REPRESENTING 42 INSTITUTIONS. THE PROGRAM WAS PLANNED ON TWO DIMENSIONS--(1) LANGUAGES TO BE INCLUDED, AND (2) SUBJECT MATTER TO BE COVERED. THE 26 LANGUAGES UNDER INVESTIGATION WERE GROUPED INTO THREE CATEGORIES--(1) OFFICIAL LANGUAGES OF INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES (HUNGARIAN, FINNISH, TURKISH, KHALKHA, KOREAN), (2) LANGUAGES OF MAJOR CULTURAL AND POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE, AND (3) LANGUAGES OF MINOR CULTURAL AND POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE. THREE MINOR URALIC LANGUAGES--OSTYAK, VOGUL, AND YURAK SAMOYED--WERE ADDED TO THE PROGRAM AFTER ITS CONCLUSION. THE MAIN GOAL OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO PRODUCE LANGUAGE TEACHING MATERIALS FOR BOTH THE SPOKEN AND WRITTEN LANGUAGE, A GRAMMAR, AND A STUDENT DICTIONARY. IN ADDITION TO DETAILS ON THE CONTRACTS AND BUDGETS INVOLVED, THE AUTHOR GIVES A BRIEF SKETCH OF THE LANGUAGE, RESEARCH, AND BACKGROUND MATERIALS PROPOSED FOR EACH LANGUAGE UNDER CONSIDERATION. COMPLETE TITLES OF THE 116 PROJECTS, ALONG WITH PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATORS AND DATES OF RESEARCH, ARE APPENDED.
