From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This is a project that I'm currently working on:

With more and more languages facing a dwindling number of users/speakers, there is a viable possibility that a wealth of knowledge and culture could be lost forever. In order to combat this danger, this proposal would strive to provide a detailed database of threatened and nearly extinct languages. As opposed to typical Wikipedia and Wiktionary articles, which are fantastic but single-faceted resources, the Wiki LanguageSaver project would attempt to expand on these resources, by including information on such topics as vocabulary, pronunciation, and if available, written works. In addition to working under the auspices of the Wikimedia Foundation, this project also has the potential to attract a large amount of outside support through various organizations.
