Here is a map of the 218 languages studied at LACITO, and/or featured in our Pangloss Collection.
For twenty years, LACITO has been developing an online archive for endangered languages: the Pangloss Collection. Once initiated by Boyd Michailovsky and Martine Mazaudon, engineered by Michel Jacobson, this project is currently run by Séverine Guillaume.
Our archived recordings can be accessed from this link. In February 2016, I endeavoured to develop a new access through an interactive map. I thus wrote the script to this new map, and my colleague Anne Behaghel helped me populate it with the languages studied in our circles.
Each dot stands for one language. Here is a key to the colours:
|language studied at , but not (yet) featured in the Pangloss Collection||88 lgs|
|language studied at Pangloss, and featured on||61 lgs|
|language studied by LACITO’s scientific partners, and featured on Pangloss||69 lgs|
Each language comes with links, with the following icons:
|expert(s) of this language in our networks|
|presentation of this language|
|access to audio recordings and annotated texts for this language on Pangloss|
|access to an online dictionary (if available)|
You may also access these same links through another page. Instead of a map format, this is an alphabetical list of all the languages in our database, also interactive.
Finally, let me here provide separate links to:
- a language map exclusively for LACITO (whether Pangloss or non-Pangloss)
— total 149 languages
- a language map exclusively for Pangloss (whether LACITO or non-LACITO)
— total 130 languages
These maps provide a good overview of the languages we have been working on. They should be uploaded on the homepages of LACITO and Pangloss as soon as possible.
