Developing Infrastructure for Computational Resources
on South Asian Languages
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.
