Language Documentation, University of Oregon

The University of Oregon Department of Linguistics and the Northwest Indian
Language Institute (NILI) announce the 2007 session in Language
June 25 - July 20 2007, Eugene, Oregon

As documenting languages takes on greater importance, there is a growing
need for well-trained fieldworkers who are prepared to collaborate with
community members. The UO Linguistics Department focuses on lesser-known
languages and empirical work. NILI has a ten-year history of working with
tribes, communities and endangered languages. We look forward to having you
join us!
