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.
This is an application for phase two of the Palawan-Tagalog-English Dictionary project-phase one of the same project has already been supported by the ELDP for the year 2006-2007 and has been successfully completed with a lexicon of 3400 entries (submitted to ELAR).Phase 2 of this project aims at preparing a tri-gloss dictionary Palawan-Tagalog-English with 5000 entries or more. At this stage we will finalize and thoroughly check the lexicographic and anthropological date already downloaded, and we will enlarge the data base (with hand-written materials already collected, together with new materials), and will proceed towards a final draft of the dictionary.
