Language documentation and description are the focus of the Language Documentation Lab. Here you’ll find an overview to get you started, a description of what a project might look like and how it might start, discussion and resources for best practices in language documentation and revitalization, tips for elicitation, and lists of online and print resources on language documentation and related topics.
