Mission Statement

The IELLab strives to intersect the goals of formal theoretical linguistics with the needs of communities speaking indigenous, minority and endangered languages.

The best way to study an endangered, minority, indigenous, un- or under-described language is if a speaker of the language is also the linguist working on it. One of the main goals of the IELLab is to train speakers of the languages so that they can become the linguists of those languages.
