Abstract
Description
The nomenclature, classification, and use of biotaxa should be a significant component of language documentation. It involves complex lexical semantics and classificatory schemes, creats a thematic stimulus for corpus development, and can facilitate community collaboration to preserve endangered language and traditional ecological knowledge. This presentation proposes a synergistic partnership among biologists, linguists, indigenous communities, and ethnographers to explore these issues.
