Goals

This toolkit was created as a collaborative project between two non-profit organizations based in the United States: Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages and Wikitongues. Both Living Tongues and Wikitongues share the goal of sustaining and revitalizing languages for future generations of speakers. The toolkit is a roadmap that helps identify where languages are on the endangerment continuum and what strategies and approaches are available to help revitalize their languages. It also provides examples of success stories that may inspire endangered language activists around the world. This toolkit includes a detailed oral history questionnaire that can be used to interview speakers about their lives as well as guide to gathering basic lexicon to create a dictionary.
