Help Support Phonemica phonemica

As you probably know, I've been busy lately with another project called Phonemica or 乡音苑. To quote the description from the project page:

Phonemica is a project to record spoken stories in every one of the thousands of varieties of Chinese in order to preserve both stories and language for future generations. We are a team of volunteers working within China and abroad.

Our mission: Bringing the richness of oral Chinese to a wider audience, through the words of natural storytellers, from every corner of the world where Chinese is spoken.

Now Phonemica is raising funds through an Indiegogo campaign that runs through June 9. Contributions will cover some new hardware, hosting, and other costs for the coming year. We need your help to keep it going and to continue being able to provide recordings of spoken Wu. How do we need help?

1. Financially, if you can swing it. We'd love if you could donate to the project fundraiser.
and/or
2. Helping us spread the word. If you know anyone who might be interested in the project, please let them know.

You can read more about the whole thing on the Phonemica blog or else on the fundraiser page.

    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:
