The Center for American Indian Languages
(CAIL) is a research and outreach arm of the Department of Linguistics
at the University of Utah
. Its mission is to assist community members in the maintenance and revitalization
(where possible) of endangered languages
, to document these languages, and to train students to do this sort of work.
The Center was founded in 2004 by its present director, well-known Americanist and historical linguist Lyle Campbell. It is located in the Fort Douglas part of the University of Utah campus.
