Khinalug 2007: Creating a digital portrait of an endangered language
During the 2007 field trip to Khinalug, we took video records of our work.
We are now pleased to offer you a 20 min movie telling about documenting an endangered language. The film presents the major types of our activities: transcribing the texts, recording phonetic samples, checking and recording the dictionary, reconstitution of a dialogue previously recorded on paper only.
The film is available in Russian with Engllish subtitles.
