The Computational Resource for South Asian Languages (CoRSAL)
The CoRSAL group supports archiving of audio, video, and text on the under-resourced languages of South Asia.
CoRSAL engages in research at the intersection of language documentation, description, and information science.
We encourage depositors from all backgrounds to create collections with us. As you explore the archive, you will see material created in field methods courses, as part of federally-funded research projects, or by dedicated community collectors.
Formats range from digitized wax cylinder recordings, to experimental recordings in sound-proof booths, to interviews recorded in the marketplace on a cell phone. This variety allows for lasting records of languages to be created from multiple perspectives collected under different circumstances.
