The Endangered Languages and Dictionaries Project at the University of
Cambridge investigates ways of writing dictionaries that better facilitate
the maintenance and revitalization of endangered languages. It explores the
relationship between documenting a language and sustaining it, and entails
collaboration with linguists, dictionary-makers and educators, as well as
members of endangered-language communities themselves, in order to determine
what lexicographic methodologies work particularly well pedagogically for
language maintenance and revitalization.


In addition to developing a methodology for writing dictionaries that are
more community-focussed and collaborative in their making, content, and
format, the Project is creating an online catalogue of dictionary projects
around the world. If you would like your dictionary to be included in the
catalogue, please fill out the Dictionary Survey via
hp or contact Sarah Ogilvie at svo21@xxxxxxxxxx We really hope you will want
to participate, in order to make the catalogue as comprehensive as possible.
