Endangered Languages and Cultures of Siberia
www.siberianlanguages.surrey.ac.uk <http://www.siberianlanguages.surrey.ac.uk%0D/>
This resource is a multimedia collection of linguistic and cultural information, which consists of a corpus of original audio and video texts in several minority languages of Siberia. The texts are accompanied by transcriptions, translations and analyses, as well as general information about the language, references, dictionaries, and images, all linked to present a flexible and interactive exploration space for a variety of users and to document a wide range of phenomena. The aim is to provide people from various backgrounds (linguists, anthropologists, speakers, language planners and the general public) with a database that can serve a variety of purposes.
At present, the site hosts the data from seven languages: Even, Forest Enets, Kolyma Yukaghir, Northern Khanty, Tundra Nenets, Tundra Yukaghir and Udihe.
The audio and video recordings on the site were collected during fieldwork in Siberia by a team of language specialists <http://www.siberianlanguages.surrey.ac.uk/about/>, whose participation is gratefully acknowledged.
