From UNESCO . . .
Dear Madam, Dear Sir,
Please allow me to bring to your attention once more the ongoing Call
for Submissions to the 'Register of Good Practices in Language
Preservation,' a database project that was launched by UNESCO's
Endangered Languages Programme in the summer of 2005
The purpose of this Register is to collect and make accessible
experience reports concerning any kind of language preservation effort,
from speaker communities, governmental and non-governmental
organizations, academic experts, etc. Our goal is to provide a free
online practice-based source of information as an aid and encouragement
for future language preservation projects.
To this end, I would like to invite you to submit any language
preservation-related projects that you or your organization are / have
been involved in to our Register, in order to share the knowledge and
experience gained with other current and future project agents.
Please consult our website
further information about the Register, as well as to download the
Register submission form for entries; or contact me at the E mail
address given below for any questions.
Thank you, and best regards,
UNESCO Endangered Languages Programme
