LivingTongues' Shop Announcement

Thank you for visiting the Living Tongues online store. All proceeds will go towards funding our language documentation projects around the globe. Living Tongues Institute’s objective is to promote the documentation, maintenance, preservation, and revitalization of endangered languages worldwide through linguist­-aided, community-­driven, multi­media language documentation projects.

Since 2005, Living Tongues Institute has reached more than one hundred endangered language communities in fifteen countries. Living Tongues researchers have also created more than eighty Talking Dictionaries to support these languages, and provided valuable digital skills training to dozens of local collaborators who help build the dictionaries.

In buying one of our items, all funds will go directly to helping linguists and language activists document, conserve and maintain an endangered language. You are also helping future generations gain access to printed materials or online resources produced in their own language. To learn more about our team, and join our mailing list, check out:
