Principal Investigators (PIs) and Applicants for Fellowships (Applicants) may propose projects involving one or more of the following three emphasis areas: To conduct fieldwork to record in digital audio and video format one or more endangered languages; to carry out the early stages of language documentation including transcription and annotation; to carry out later stages of documentation including the preparation of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases; to conduct initial analysis of findings in the light of current linguistic theory. Computerization of speech and universal Internet access is transforming the practice of linguistics in the area of endangered languages. "NSF Update" also is available on NSF's website. While the DEL Program does not sponsor or have an official arrangement with any language archive, these services are provided by DELAMAN member archives (http://www.delaman.org) and by institutions holding the Data Seal of Approval (https://www.datasealofapproval.org/en/). The program supports projects that contribute to data management and archiving, and to the development of the next generation of researchers. (202) 606-8456, The Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) program is a joint effort between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to help fund fieldwork, research, and community activities that are involved in recording, documenting, and archiving endangered human languages.      Division of Information & Intelligent Systems After an administrative review has occurred, Grants and Agreements Officers perform the processing and issuance of a grant or other agreement. (See Section VI.B.
