Ethical issues as they relate to documentation of endangered languages include consideration of the rights and obligations of the various parties who have interests in such work. Ownership, copyright, and access restrictions are examined from the perspectives of the language documenters, of the minority societies within larger governments, and of the individuals and communities whose speech have been documented. Goals for collaboration with speakers and other members of their communities, questions of ownership of archived materials, and access to collections – these can be negotiated between communities and academic institutions. Efforts toward language documentation might be most effectively aimed, not only at recording languages, but in supporting their continued use within their respective communities.
