Summary of the paper

Title Selection Criteria for Low Resource Language Programs
Authors Christopher Cieri, Mike Maxwell, Stephanie Strassel and Jennifer Tracey
Abstract This paper documents and describes the criteria used to select languages for study within programs that include low resource languages whether given that label or another similar one. It focuses on five US common task, Human Language Technology research and development programs in which the authors have provided information or consulting related to the choice of language. The paper does not describe the actual selection process which is the responsibility of program management and highly specific to a program’s individual goals and context. Instead it concentrates on the data and criteria that have been considered relevant previously with the thought that future program managers and their consultants may adapt these and apply them with different prioritization to future programs.
Topics LR National/International Projects, Infrastructural/Policy issues, Endangered Languages, Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.)
