Language Documentation (भाषा अभिलेखीकरण)

MTCN has been progressing on the language documentation work. Language documentation project has helped the minority language communities by recording the available utterances in audio-video format so that these materials can be used for passing on to the new generation and language and cultural knowledge preservation purposes. In this regard, we record the available utterances in 12 different genres. These audio files represent different kinds of linguistic events in the language community. The linguistic data are entered into the computer for annotation and translation. Language documentation project serves the language users to encounter problems with representation in writing phonemes. However, the initial work starts from whatever available writing system is there at hand. the purpose is to preserve the sample of language varieties for linguistic analysis.
