Get Involved

ELA is a small organization but a large extended family, a flexible platform for anyones who care about linguistic diversity — and it depends on your support.



What better way to say "I love you" than to say "I love NY", in all six word orders found across human languages? Or a language map?


ELA is a non-profit that relies on grants and supporters like you to fund its work documenting, revitalizing and supporting languages.

Sustain Your Language

If you know an Indigenous, minority, endangered, or primarily oral language and want to collaborate, here are some things you can do.


ELA is powered by the work of its volunteers, who have made contributions to the organization in every area.
