Endangered Languages Data Summary.
Yamamoto, Akira Y., Comp.
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v21 p-159-229 1996
This preliminary report presents the results of a 1995 Linguistic Society of America survey on endangered languages. The Endangered Languages Survey was prepared in consultation with other linguistic organizations such as the German Linguistic Group, Endangered Languages Clearing House, and the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas (SSILA). Forty-eight language researchers responded regarding 80 languages and dialects. This report was issued to highlight the need for additional input to the database as well as to suggest the possible existence of an indigenous language-community bias in the reported information. Completed survey forms are appended. Each form indicates the researcher completing the form and details on the languages currently being studied, such as demographics, geographic location, and publications in/on the language. (NAV)
