The University of Utah is disbanding an 8-year-old center devoted to documenting and preserving indigenous languages, framing the move as the best way to focus on Utah’s tribal tongues.

However, the U. will severely narrow the scope of these efforts, a shift from the Center for American Indian Languages’ (CAIL) current work on languages across the New World, particularly in South and Central America. The "restructuring" will "enable greater efficiency and coordination within the college and university-wide," officials said in an Aug. 31 announcement.

Far less clear is what will become of some initiatives started or nurtured under the leadership of the center’s founder, Lyle Campbell, well-known among linguists for documenting native languages before they fall silent.
