Central Universities to Launch Centres for Endangered Languages

Apr 30, 2014 15:30 IST

    The Central University of Karnataka, Gulbarga and Central University of Kerala, Kasaragod have been received a grant of Rs. 3.6 crore each from University Grants Commission (UGC) to establish centres of endangered languages.

    As per the official sources, the centres to be set up in the two Central Varsities would perform in a cluster format as a consortium to develop numeric and coastal languages. The Central University of Karnataka would work as the lead cluster.

    The two Central universities had been given the mandate to take up research on endangered languages while coordinating with each other, said the sources.

    To give a start to this initiative, the Central University of Karnataka would soon organise a two-day workshop to prepare a work plan for setting up a centre for endangered languages.
