    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“My purpose is to fill out our knowledge of that language, and it involves a lot of different things-recording different kinds of speech, vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and trying to integrate that information with material that earlier linguists have collected.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“What I find interesting about it is the richness of the archive and the challenge of figuring out how the language as it was documented in 1905 is similar to or different from the language we can hear now. The project is trying to pull all of that into one big picture of a single language.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It is frustrating to work with a language where all the speakers are very elderly. During the time I have been working on the language one very good speaker has died, and another came close to death but now is fine...it can be discouraging and a little scary. Also on a practical level, they're all sort of deaf so that's been an obstacle.”
