About Alice Kwak
I am a second year Ph.D. student who is interested in language revitalization, language documentation, language database creation, and pedagogical material development. I am currently involved in the COLRC (Coeur d'Alene Online Language Resource Center) project, and I am also working as a graduate research associate in the School of Information. My current research topic is to analyze the status of Coeur d'Alene pedagogical materials and to figure out ways to improve them through integrating various materials (scholarly grammars, oral literatures, language database).
