The Endangered Language Documentation Programme (ELDP) provides grants worldwide to for the linguistic documentation of endangered language and knowledge. Grantees create multimedia collection of endangered languages. These collections are preserved and made freely available through the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR) housed at the library of SOAS University of London.
The project seeks to describe and document Choguita Raramuri (Tarahumara), an endangered, underdescribed Uto-Aztecan language of the Taracahitan branch spoken in the northwest of Mexico. The specific goal of this project is twofold: to complement the results of initial description and documentation and carry out later stages of documentation to produce a reference grammar of the language; and to train Raramuri colleagues in the community of Choguita in audio and video documentation, mobilisation of documentation products for immediate use in the community and training of younger speakers in documentation practices.
