At noon on April 19th, Grambank went live. With over 400,000 data points & 2400 languages, it is the largest comparative grammatical database available. Dr. Hannah Haynie, assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics at CU Boulder, is a team leader on the initiative and first author of a Science Advances article  describing the resource (with over 100 co-authors). "Right now we're at a critical state, in terms of language endangerment,” says Dr. Haynie. “Grambank is showing us the importance of working on language documentation and revitalization in order to preserve this legacy of human communication, culture and cognition.”
