LACITO

« Languages and Cultures of Oral Tradition »
UMR 7107 – CNRS

Since 1976, LaCiTO has been exploring the diversity of languages and civilizations with an oral tradition.
This diversity, studied by means of immersion fieldwork within speaker communities, is described and modelled by analyzing the historical, geographical and social factors that shape it.
