Abstract

In this paper I consider how documentary linguists can provide support for community language planning initiatives, and discuss some issues. These relate partly to the process of language documentation: what and who we choose to document, how we define ‘a language’, and how we deal with language variation and change; and partly to community attitudes and dynamics.
