The project aims at a documentation of the Salilba-Logea language in its cultural context which will combine audio, video and photo material with text files, glosses and translations. The database will feature texts of different types by speakers of all ages.

The corpus shall facilitate future research in a wide range of areas including anthropology, oral history, ethno-botany, comparative research in language typology, psycholinguistics, the interaction of speech and gesture, spatial deixis, detailed grammatical description, etc. As importantly, the corpus shall be of practical value to the language community in a variety of ways including as a source for teaching materials and other texts and as a documentation of traditional knowledge for future generations.

Focal points of the documentation include interviews with community elders, documentation of cultural practices, canoe building, mythical accounts of local landmarks and other traditional stories, texts of ethno-botanical relevance and the emergence of a written language style.
