Revitalization

ELA assists with community-based language revitalization efforts when possible, bringing linguistic knowhow and resources to where communities need it most.

Introduction

Introduction

Worldwide, speakers of endangered languages are increasingly spearheading remarkable revitalization efforts with technology, education, community organization, and other strategies.

Language Classes

ELA frequently helps organize and host inexpensive classes in languages that are rarely, if ever, taught.

Storybooks

Depending on community interest, ELA collaborates on and publishes storybooks for children, the speakers of the future. Few projects are more impactful for language maintenance and revitalization, with entertaining, relevant, and professional reading materials and other resources for children often scarce in Indigenous, minority, and primarily oral languages.
