Description:
This is collection focuses on Archaic Akha, a code which is not mutually intelligible with modern Akha (ISO 639-3: akh). There are about 500,000 speakers of Akha in Burma, China, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. However, according to community reports, the archaic code is spoken by perhaps only 100 elderly shaman. This collection, based out of Chiang Rai, Thailand, will consist of a corpus of Archaic Akha. It may be used by the community for educational materials, and also serve as the basis for a reference grammar of the language.
