Because we envision this as an open-ended project, this application is for the initial and labor intensive establishment of the Interactive Linguistics Databases.

We envision the majority of the set-up work to be conducted during Summer 1999 and the following two terms.

However on a project of this scale which relies on faculty contributions, we anticipate that there will be extensive elaboration and modification in the second year of the project. Accordingly, we request the budget be primarily for the AY 1999-2000 (starting Summer 1999), with a smaller budget for 2000-2001 (starting Summer 2000).

After the second year of the project, the department will provide financial support for maintanance and expansion of the materials in subsequent years. (See the letter of support from the Chair.)
