    • Language: Nukuoro (nkr)
    • Dates: 2016-
    • Historical information: Nukuoro is an endangered Polynesian language spoken on Nukuoro Atoll, a low-lying island chain approximately 480 kilometers southwest of the state capital of Pohnpei, Micronesia. There are an estimated 1,200 speakers of Nukuoro worldwide, primarily on Nukuoro Atoll, Pohnpei, Guam, and in the United States. While language use is fairly robust on Nukuoro Atoll, diaspora communities are facing increased influence from regionally dominant languages like Pohnpeian and English; many Nukuoro community members under 30 feel more comfortable speaking other languages or do not identify as Nukuoro speakers at all. As rising sea levels threaten the sustainability of life on the atoll, diaspora communities will continue to grow, putting greater pressure of majority languages on the Nukuoro-speaking community.
    • Scope and content: Materials from 2015 and 2016 were developed by Emily Drummond and Lydia Ding as part of their undergraduate coursework. Materials from 2019 forward were developed by Emily Drummond during her time as a graduate student in linguistics at UC Berkeley. Materials include audio recordings of elicitation sessions, oral narratives, and conversational texts; field notes; transcriptions; photos and videos documenting cultural and other practices; and ancillary documents.
