Center for American Indian Languages


Center for American Indian Languages

The Center for American Indian Languages (CAIL) is a research and outreach arm of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Utah. Its mission is to assist community members in the maintenance and revitalization (where possible) of endangered languages, to document these languages, and to train students to do this sort of work.

The Center was founded in 2004 by its present director, well-known Americanist and historical linguist Lyle Campbell. It is located in the Fort Douglas part of the University of Utah campus.
