Cornell Language Documentation Lab

Welcome to the webpage for the Cornell Language Documentation Lab, a research lab in the Department of Linguistics at Cornell University. Our lab provides resources and laboratory space for research involving language documentation, description, and analysis, with an emphasis on understudied languages.

Located on the second floor of Morrill Hall, in room 226A, the lab provides a variety of hardware and software for collecting, processing, analyzing, and storing primary linguistic data. The lab space can be used for elicitation sessions with language consultants as well as for individual or group research. We also provide training and support for combining linguistic analysis with fieldwork and community-oriented projects.

On this website, you will find information about the resources provided by the lab, including the available equipment, software, and books. We have also compiled links to external resources, including advice for linguistic fieldwork and funding sources.
