Yupik Project

My colleague Lane Schwartz (UIUC) and I are co-leading a team working on St. Lawrence Island/Central Siberian Yupik. The language is endangered and under-documented. We are working to better document the morphosyntax, semantics, phonology, and phonetics of the language; to digitize existing materials in and on the language; and to create computer tools for language users.

We are currently funded by a 42-month NSF DEL grant: “NNA: Collaborative Research: Integrating Language Documentation and Computational Tools for Yupik, an Alaska Native Language”.

Here you can find links to our publications to date, our completed computer tools, and other useful links.
