Description:Following the story told in FU0154_01, Jin Weiyan explained in Mandarin what it meant.
Lemo is considered a Northern Branch of the Bai language. It is spoken by 12,000 people in the Nujiang Valley of the Yunnan Province in China. Lemo culture and language faces a decline due to the encroachment of Lisu and Mandarin Chinese. The current project aims at working with the Language Community to document its language in its dynamic daily uses and cultural performances. It will produce a working orthography, a language learning manual, partially annotated digital audio and video materials that represent the cultural and linguistic practices, a dictionary, and a sketch grammar.
Gao is a post-doc in linguistics. He specializes in big data analysis. For the project he helps with all technical aspects, including depositing, designing software for the ease of transcription.
