Dear Friends,

With a view to contributing to the promotion of national (non- 
official) languages in Timor-Leste and to exploring their role in  
nation- and identity-building, the Timor Lorsa’e Nippon Culture  
Centre, National Institute of Linguistics, State Secretary of Culture  
and the UNESCO National Commission for Timor-Leste will organise a  
National Meeting on the Languages of Timor-Leste from 5 to 6 August in  

In preparing for this meeting, we are attempting to compile a  
comprehensive Resource Map, consisting of all known publications  
(dictionaries, word lists, grammars, literacy materials, songs and  
chants, poems etc), researchers (international and East Timorese) and  
local language authorities for each of the principal linguistic groups.

We invite you to assist us in this effort by sending us details of  
publications (including soft copies of materials, if available), web  
references and the contact details of researchers and local language  
authorities you have knowledge of.

We thank you in advance for your interest and collaboration,

Kirsty Sword Gusmão
Chair, UNESCO National Commission for Timor-Leste
