How to Access and Use the Ethnologue, A Curated Repository of Language Information


In this video, David Eberhard, General Editor of The Ethnologue at SIL International, discusses The Ethnologue: Languages of the World, the most complete catalogue of 7,097 known living languages. This resource includies the number of speakers, locations, dialects, linguistic affiliations, and revitalization efforts, and is used by planners, educators, and funders to guide decision making. What does it say about your community? This video shows viewers how to review, add to, or change an entry within The Ethnologue. This video supplements the session "What Does the “Ethnologue" Reveal About the Vitality of Your Language?" given at the 2019 ATALM annual conference held in Temecula, California, on October 8-11, 2019.
