Welcome

The Centre for Endangered Languages, Tezpur University was established in 2014 with the aim of conducting substantial research on the lesser known and endangered languages of Northeast India and to revitalize them with the direct and indirect institutional intervention. It is because each and every language embodies the unique cultural and historical wisdom of a people. The loss of any language is thus an irrevocable loss for all humanity. Yet, according to a recent UNESCO report - Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger (2009) - out of the approximately 7,000 existing languages in the world more than 2,500 are under threat of imminent extinction. They may be extinct even before the next century begins. Know More
