Reflections on the diversity of participation in language documentation

    Abstract

    In this paper, I reflect on the diversity of participation in language documentation in the Indonesian context over the past two decades. I show that progress has been made in documentation research on the minority languages, with the concerted efforts of different stakeholders (community/non-community—among the latter, affiliations with universities, non-governmental organizations, the government, and other types of organizations of local speech communities). However, challenging issues remain in relation to the local communities’ capacity, motivation, and leadership for helpful and long-term active participation in language documentation.
