A language map for LACITO and Pangloss

(version française)

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.

(see the map in full screen)

Each dot stands for one language. Here is a key to the colours:

white language studied at LACITO, but not (yet) featured in the Pangloss Collection 88 lgs
orange-star language studied at LACITO, and featured on Pangloss 61 lgs
orange language studied by LACITO’s scientific partners, and featured on Pangloss 69 lgs
white language studied by LaCiTO’s current doctoral students 22 lgs
white language studied by LaCiTO’s former doctoral students 14 lgs

Each language comes with links, with the following icons:

dico expert(s) of this language in our networks
dico presentation of this language
dico access to audio recordings and annotated texts for this language on Pangloss
dico 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:

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.
