Endangered Languages are not Low-Resourced!

EasyChair Preprint no. 5415

11 pagesDate: April 28, 2021


The term low-resourced has been tossed around in the field of natural language processing to a degree that almost any language that is not English can be called "low-resourced"; sometimes even just for the sake of making a mundane or mediocre paper appear more interesting and insightful. In a field where English is a synonym for language and low-resourced is a synonym for anything not English, calling endangered languages low-resourced is a bit of an overstatement. In this paper, I inspect the relation of the endangered with the low-resourced from my own experiences.

Keyphrases: Criticism of science, endangered languages, low-resourced languages, NLP
