General Language Description
Many of Indonesia's 800 or so languages have not been properly described. For some, all we have are short word lists; for others, even that does not exist. Our General Language Description project selects languages and dialects which are of linguistic interest, but have not been properly described yet. Particular attention is given to nonstandard varieties, which have typically suffered from the worst neglect.
