Looking for speakers of small endangered languages - tell us words in your language!

Do you speak an "obscure," little-known language? If so, then we welcome you to participate in an exciting scientific project!

(NOTE: We are only looking for languages with NO DICTIONARIES. We are not looking for Indonesian, Javanese, Arabic, Tamil, Bengali, Yoruba, Igbo, or other major local languages that are taught in schools, have dictionaries, or are spoken by millions of people.)

No experience or qualifications needed other than a willingness to share words in your language and have them recorded!

Budget: Anywhere from $5-$50, depending on time and skills. In general, we pay about $5 / hour for participants' time.

How to apply: You can tell us what languages you speak. No need for a long cover letter.

Time: Could be range from less than an hour to a few days.

What you need to do: We will send you a vocabulary word list that is a few hundred words long. You will need to make a quality recording of the list by repeating each word in your language twice (using the software program Audacity). We will provide instructions on how to use Audacity.

***DETAILS***

I am a linguist (language scientist) looking for native speakers of any endangered language with approximately fewer than 100,000 speakers. Currently, I am building comprehensive lexical databases for as many world languages as possible, in collaboration with various other linguists and scientists from around the world.

Languages we are interested in: Note that we are not looking for local languages with many speakers such as Tamil, Konkani, Yoruba, or Cebuano, since those are all already very well documented. We are looking for the most "obscure" languages that few people have heard of. Example: If you are from Bangladesh, we are not looking for speakers of Sylheti, but rather "small" languages like Mru.

No work experience or educational qualifications other than native language fluency are needed. Please note that this project is paid for out of pocket, has limited funding, and can have a large number of participants.

Speakers will be asked to provide audio recordings of a few hundred basic vocabulary items (animals, plants, body parts, verbs, etc.) for poorly documented languages with few or no lexical resources. We will also ask you for a few dozen sentence examples and about the sounds of your language. Additionally, speakers will be asked about language demographics and sociolinguistics. Voice interviews for eliciting vocabulary usually take a few hours.

We would be particularly interested in speakers of local languages ("dialects") from these parts of the world, but are not solely limited to these locations.

- Africa: Nigeria, Cameroon, DRC, CAR, Chad, South Sudan, Sudan, Ethiopia, etc.

- East and Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Northeast India, Nepal, Bhutan, China, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, etc.

- Latin America: Brazil, Peru, Colombia, etc.

- Oceania: Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, etc.

Please let us know if you, your friends, or family members who speak small endangered languages may be able to participate.

Thank you for your interest!
