About the Summer School
The field of language documentation has matured over the last 15 years.
With several funding initiatives running out, community-driven language
documentation ensures sustainable documentation.
This summer school is designed to encourage community-driven
interdisciplinary language documentation. It will bring together
speakers of endangered languages, local language workers, students and
researchers of linguistics and related fields. The summer school is
intended to be a space for engagement and exchange between community
members, language workers and students and provide an environment for
learning about each other's interests and requirements.
The curriculum is developed to be in accordance with the needs and
interests of the speech communities. It aims at empowering the speech
communities to participate in the definition and implementation of
research projects and sensitise students of linguistic for the needs of
the communities. Thus, the major goal of this summer school is to
introduce the participants into the theory and methods of language
documentation. The goal is to acquire the knowledge and competence to
conduct one's own documentation projects with regard to endangered language.
This summer school is part of a larger event. The week before CDLD 2014
