About the Centre
Everywhere, in virtually everyone’s speech, there are alarming signs that people are mortgaging their mother tongue(s). Given the complexity of interrelationship and situations of life, it is both crucial and exigent that an effective and sustained archival effort is initiated to organize the recovery, research, collection and collation, recording and presentation of the wealth of our mother tongue(s) of posterity. If some measures are not taken immediately the state of Mother Tongue(s) will become pitiable. Hence the University of Hyderabad proposes the Creation of a Centre for Endangered Languages & Mother Tongue Studies to take up the task of Recovery, Collection and Collation, Preservation and Recording, Translation and Study of texts from the mother tongues threatened with extinction.
