Lower St'at'imcets documentation

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 Lower St'át'imcets Documentation project will document the extremely endangered Lower dialect of St'át'imcets, an Interior Salish language. Lower St'át'imcet has only a handful of fluent speakers, and has never been systematically documented. The project will be conducted in collaboration with the Lower Stl'atl'imx community. The project outcomes are: 40 hours of digital video and audio recordings; a Lower St'át'imcets text collection, grammar and lexicon; meta data about the data and the documentation process; and newly trained fieldworkers in the Lower Stl'atl'imx community and at Simon Fraser University. Primary investigator: Kimary Shahin
