Orthography Development

A total of 123 languages ​​are spoken in Nepal. Many of the 123 languages ​​do not have fixed characters.

Along with the goal of literacy, before language can be written down, writing language requires the general rules of literary development. It should come as a result of meaningful discussions of language communities. Mother Tongue Centre Nepal (MTCN) has developed a participatory writing style development process. By helping communities to empower their language, communities are supported to develop alphabet and spelling rules within a two-week workshop with the help of trained linguists.
