Chickasaw Language

In February 2010, the UT Arlington Linguistics & TESOL Department began a partnership with the Chickasaw Language Revitalization Program in connection with LING 6390 Seminar in Sustainability and Language Endangerment. This collaborative relationship has grown since then. Currently, this collaboration, focusing on the Chickasaw verb, is funded by an NSF grant, BCS#1263699., for collaborative work with Mr. Joshua Hinson of the Chickasaw Language Revitalization Program on Documentation and Analysis of the Chickasaw Verb. This project is driven by a shared goal of revitalization-driven documentation and includes significant training for Chickasaw citizens and UT Arlington students. The partnership draws on mutually beneficial service projects designed by Hinson and Fitzgerald and carried out by UT Arlington students.
