More On The Disappearing Shanghaihua guanxi - links

CNNGo has an article up on the disappearance of Shanghainese.

I may have mentioned a while back that just because there are a kabillion Wu speakers it doesn't mean the language won't be gone in a few generations. Looks like it's happening sooner than predicted.

    About

    A semi-academic linguistics blog about Sinotibetan, previously focused primarily on Wú, a Sinitic language spoken in the Yangtze Delta region. Topics now include historical linguistics, documentation, language rights, sociolinguistics and learning materials, as well as acting as the dev blog for Phonemica from time to time.

    I'm a linguist based in Asia, working on documentation and historical development of Sinotibetan. In addition to academic research, I'm heavily involved in Phonemica, an organisation that promotes crowd-sourced preservation of local languages.

    I'm currently in the field, so getting in touch isn't easy. However you can try to email me at the following address and I'll respond as soon as I'm able:
