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 goal of this project is to produce a sketch grammar of one variety of Mongghul, including a description of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and a wordlist. Information on language contact and history will also be included. In addition, the project head will conduct a small dialectical survey of the documented and non-documented varieites of Mongghul. Mongghul is an endangered Mongolic language spoken in the Qinghai and Gansu provinces in China. Primary investigator: Burgel Faehndrich
