Internet Database for Minority Languages of Burma (Myanmar)

The SOAS Wa Dictionary Project will not only produce one or more editions of a Wa-Burmese-Chinese-English print dictionary, but also, since it will be centred on a corpus-based database and Internet resource, it will serve as a template suitable for corpus-driven lexicography and linguistic research on other languages spoken in Burma/Myanmar, besides Wa, after the life of the project.

As this Myanmar minority language database matures, details about its organisation and use will be posted here.
