OLAC, the Open Language Archives Community, is an international partnership of institutions and individuals who are creating a worldwide virtual library of language resources by: (i) developing consensus on best current practice for the digital archiving of language resources, and (ii) developing a network of interoperating repositories and services for housing and accessing such resources.
NILI supports and strengthens language preservation and revitalization efforts. With tribal, academic and community partners, NILI establishes collaborative, on-going projects which meet the specific needs and desires of each language community. Integral to NILI are teacher training, curriculum development, language documentation and appropriate uses in technology. NILI provides outreach services on issues of language endangerment and advocates for language revitalization issues.
The Speech Perception and Production Lab at the University of Oregon asks how people perceive and produce speech, with a particular focus on communication across diverse language backgrounds. We conduct laboratory phonology and psycholinguistic experiments looking at speech perception and production and acoustic-phonetic analyses of speech.
The mission of the National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages (National BoL) is to work with endangered language communities to build capacity around methods in archives-based research for community-directed revitalization efforts.
