Online Documentation of Kolyma Yukaghir is now publicly available at

This website is a multimedia collection of linguistic and cultural
information on Kolyma Yukaghir, a highly endangered language spoken by about
forty people in North-East Siberia. You will find here 52 original Yukaghir
texts, both as audio recordings and in transcribed, translated and analysed
form. The texts were recorded in 1980s and 1990s in the Yukaghir settlements
Nelemnoe and Zyrianka. There are also dictionaries and pictures. Much use is
made of cross-references and links between various kinds of data: textual,
grammatical, lexicographic, auditory, and visual. The documentation was
compiled in 2004 by Irina Nikolaeva, with the online implementation by
Thomas Mayer.
