Summary
Researching and archiving languages that are no longer spoken, or are still spoken by only a few people, can be a long and involved project. This book aims to inform both community and academic language workers about how to take texts and wordlists from historical sources (e.g. manuscripts and oral recordings) and making them useful in language programs and literature today
