Iwaidja Inyman: Helping endangered languages

May 2, 2011

One of the things that we love in Forvo is helping endangered languages to create a database of recordings for the future generations. Recently we have contacted Bruce Birch from the Iwaidja Inyman project and they are starting to record some words in Iwaidja. Iwaidja is a language from Australia with just a few hundreds of native speakers. We are still focused on the development of Forvo but this kind of project can fit with no effort in our daily work, so if you know more like this, please forward them to Forvo so we can help. Keep up the good work!
