INEL („Grammatical Descriptions, Corpora and Language Technology for Indigenous Northern Eurasian Languages“) is a long-term research project in the context of the Academies’ Programme [1], which is coordinated by the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities [2]. The project is carried out by the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg [3] in cooperation with the University of Hamburg [4].
Since its beginning in 2016 the project aims at the discovery and documentation of language material coming from selected indigenous languages and varieties of the Northern Eurasian Area. Using the latest methods of digital data processing, these unique resources are digitally curated, partially scaled, enriched with linguistic information and finally made publicly available over the internet. Thereby INEL acts as a bridge between the exploration of indigenous languages and the international partner institutions.
