Linguistics graduate student Bryan Gelles received a "Small Grant" from the Endangered Languages Documentation Program (ELDP) to begin documentation and to establish the feasibility of a full scale documentation of Animere, a critically endangered Niger-Congo language spoken in the Ghana-Togo Mountain region.
Linguistics graduate student Todd Hughes received a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant from the National Science Foundation to study Wakhi, an endangered language spoken in Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and China.
