Title: Defining and Redefining NSF Funding for Linguistics
Lead Author: Goldsmith, John A
Abstract: There are three domains in which linguistics has an important role to play in American society, roles which merit NSF's continual support. These domains involve, first of all, fundamental scientific research, in part (but only in part) in alliance with collaborators in psychology, biology, and computer science; second, a better understanding of how the languages of the United States and abroad are evolving under the impact of racial, social, and economic differentiation, of immigration, and accelerating globalization, along with a better understanding of how language knowledge and use plays a vital role in finding solutions to economic and social challenges; and third, issues of technical translation, which is to say, of harnessing of linguistic research in order to create and to improve technology necessary for the economic growth of the country.
