Sulawesi Language Alliance

Championing Local Languages in the Heart of Indonesia


Sulawesi Language Alliance offers two kinds of resources. Our language materials are resources that concern a particular language of Sulawesi. Often geared toward language data rather than linguistic analyses, these working papers are arranged in several series depending on the type of material which is being offered (e.g. a story, a dictionary, a grammar sketch, etc.).

In addition to language materials, we offer other resouces which may or may not be tied to a particular language. Papers in the series Topics in Lexicography are written for dictionary compilers working in the Indonesian context. The goal of Translations from the Dutch is to make colonial-era writings about Sulawesi accessible to a wider audience. Our Bookshelf is a small collection of lesser-known and hard-to-find works concerning the languages and peoples of Sulawesi. On our page For Language Promoters we offer informational resources in Indonesian and English concerning language maintenance and language revitalization issues, including practical steps that people can take to promote their local language and see it used more in the community.
