Developing Infrastructure for Computational Resources
on South Asian Languages
November 17, 2017
WILLIS LIBRARY, Room 250H, UNT MAIN CAMPUS
UNT Faculty from Linguistics, Information Science, Computer Science, and Anthropology are partnering with the UNT Digital Library to create a repository for South Asian languages at UNT. This repository will house data in formats that can be easily accessed and used by non-linguists and linguists for a range of purposes including language science, computational linguistics, language reclamation and revitalization, language teaching, and investigations into diverse cultures and histories. The CHARN-funded symposium seeks to gain advice from experienced language curators, data depositors, and archivists in the practical and scientific challenges in creating such a resource.
