Director of Research for Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages Dr. K. David Harrison published his book When Languages Die with Oxford University Press in 2007. This book is the first account of global language endangerment and the threat of knowledge loss that is looming as a humanitarian and scientific catastrophe written for a popular audience. It is also the first book for a general audience on language endangerment written by a linguist with field experience with endangered languages. Data from the Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages India 2005 Field Expedition is featured in several places throughout as are things from the Ös Documentation Project Siberia 2005 Field Expedition
 
The Munda Verb: Typological Perspectives 2007 Mouton de Gruyter.
ISBN: 978-3-11-018965-0 ISSN: 1861-4302
This book by Dr. Gregory D. S. Anderson of Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages is the first systematic analysis of data from verbal systems of languages of the diverse Munda language family. In addition to general information on Munda languages and their structures, it contains chapters on Voice, Tense/Aspect/Mood/Transitivity, Referent Indexing, Negation, Incorporation, Switch Reference, and Complex Predicates. Comments on historical developments, where appropriate or merited, are offered throughout as well. The book The Munda Verb: Typological Perspectives is written for professional linguists and advanced graduate students interested in typology, South Asian linguistics, morphology, and language change.
 
Auxiliary Verb Constructions 2006 Oxford University Press.
ISBN: 0-19-928031-2 978-0-19-928031-2 
A new approach to the study of complex predicates by Dr. Gregory D. S. Anderson of Living Tongues Institute for Endangered Languages is a benchmark for future research in typology. With a sample of over 800 languages, the issue of how to construct a valid index of a linguistic phenomenon across the world’s languages appears to be resolved. This panchronic approach discusses the full range of functional specialization of and formal developments from two part phrasal constructs to verbal affix that characterizes auxiliary verb constructions and related complex predicate structure types (serial verb constructions, medial verb forms, etc.). This book is written for advanced graduate students of linguistics and professional linguists. Auxiliary Verb Constructions is of particular interest to specialists in historical linguistics, linguistic typology, syntax, semantics, morphology, or grammaticalization.
