Language Goes Digital
Are you fluent in any language indigenous to Borneo?
Do you wish to help preserve your language for future generations?
Passionate to preserve the indigeneous languages in Borneo, a community based project titled Borneo Lingua-Hack is organised, to recognise the efforts in bringing "LANGUAGE GOES DIGITAL" through online open resource platform, Borneo Dictionary (borneodictionary.com).
The word "lingua-hack" is a portmanteau of the words "lingua" and "hack", where hack is used in the sense of exploratory programming. While lingua welcomes submissions from all linguistic disciplines including philosophy of language, rhetoric, historical linguistics, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics.
Powered by MaGIC Sarawak, Borneo Lingua-Hack aims to bring together the community members from various ethnics in Borneo to help build and expand the Borneo Dictionary.
