National BoL Module 2 training is designed to build capacity around advanced archives-based research for language revitalization. Module 2 training focuses on the management of digital archival collections and advanced linguistic analysis of data for language revitalization to community researchers who already possess archival materials.
The training centers on the use of the Indigenous Languages Digital Archive (ILDA) , a freely available software suite that allows for the organization, storage and retrieval of digital copies of linguistic archival materials. ILDA directly links independent data derived from linguistic analysis to the original manuscript pages. Its powerful search function allows for rapid recall of language data and the in-depth linguistic analysis required for the reconstruction of a highly endangered or sleeping language.
The 2021 workshop will be held August 9-13, 2021 at the Northwest Indian Language Institute at the University of Oregon.
