South American linguists directory

October 9, 2009

There is an interesting new initiative going on over at Etnolingüística, the hybrid website, discussion list, and resource archive on South American languages run by Eduardo Ribeiro. Briefly, they are attempting to put together a registry of linguists working with South American indigenous languages, including information on research interests and the languages that each linguist is working with.

I think this is a terrific step to building a more robust and interconnected community of South Americanist linguists, which I feel is especially important for Amazonianists. So, if you are a linguist working with an indigenous language of South America, and haven’t done so yet, get over to Etnolingüística and participe!
