    About This Project

    It is estimated that within the next 100 years, over 90% of the world's languages will become extinct due to events such as contact with prestige languages. Salasaca Kichwa, a Northern Highlands dialect of Ecuadorian Quechua, is currently labeled as endangered by several leading linguistic organizations. Our goal is to support the preservation Salasaca Kichwa through the documentation of linguistic material, and suggest a new means by which endangered languages can be saved from extinction.
