Language Profiles

Each Language Profile includes information about the historical, cultural, and social roots of the language, a map showing where the language is spoken, basic facts about the grammar, writing systems, and history of the language, and a wealth of other sociolinguistic information. Each page also contains links to the LMP citations for that language and a list of websites of interest to teachers and learners of the language.

The links are located at the top of the Profile page, just under the language name. There is also a link to select the Profile for another language.

Each profile comes with a Creative Commons license that makes these stipulations:
  • you may use and modify the material for any non-commercial purpose
  • you must credit Language Materials Project as the source
  • if you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under a license identical to this one
