Yuxi university working to preserve minority languages

A law aimed at preserving minority culture in Yunnan has led to the creation of a facility developed solely for the recording and transcription of the province's diverse languages. Languages with fewer than 500 fluent speakers have been given precedence. Yunnan is home to 25 officially recognized minorities. The goal of the project is to compile audio and video recordings of people speaking their native languages and then transcribing the samples into Mandarin and pinyin. Once this is accomplished, linguists working at the university translate everything into International Phonetic Alphabet to make the documentation more easily accessible to linguists.
