Message 2: funds for fieldwork on endangered languages

Date: Fri, 10 Jun 1994 17:58:00 funds for fieldwork on endangered languages
From: George Huttar 709 2400 <george.huttarSIL.ORG>
Subject: funds for fieldwork on endangered languages

 Re: endangered languages

 Further information on the grants offered by the Summer Institute of
 Linguistics for the study of endangered languages, recently reported by
 Dan Everett (LINGUIST 5-677):

 Currently funds are available for up to four more grants of up to
 $1,000 each. Grants are intended to supplement funds from the
 student's institution (e.g., when the latter funds are not sufficient
 to cover special expenses entailed by fieldwork, such as international
 travel). "Endangered language" remains undefined, but criteria we
 consider include number of known speakers (using a fairly low
 population threshold), current trends in language use, and quantity and
 quality of already available research. Applications should be made by
 the student's supervising professor. Inquiries should be addressed,
 not to the contact person reasonably hypothesized by Everett, but to:

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is offering
a predoctoral scholarship in the field of language production.

The PhD research project should concern the interface of
phonological encoding and articulation. Therefore, a strong
background in articulatory phonetics and/or experimental
psycholinguistics would be desirable.

Women are especially encouraged to apply.
