The Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP) and the Department of Linguistic and Cultural Evolution (DLCE) at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology are collaborating to document linguistic diversity focussing on languages of Latin America and Oceania. The DLCE is providing grants of up to 5,000 € for work contributing to Glottobank. If you are working on a Latin American language or a language of Oceania (broadly construed to include Micronesia, Polynesia, the Western Pacific, New Guinea, and Island Southeast Asia) and can contribute new language data to the Glottobank databases, this call is for you. The funds can be used for travel and subsistence costs, recording equipment or equipment for remote/distributed fieldwork, and consultant payments.
