Documentation and Description of Cappadocian
Summary of deposit
Cappadocian (also known as Asia Minor Greek) is a Greek-Turkish mixed language thought to have died in the 1960s until its rediscovery in 2005. According to our present knowledge, there are an estimated several hundred native speakers and possibly another several hundred semi-speakers living in three villages near Thessaloniki (Northern Greece) and Larissa (Central Greece). The documentation project provides, with the collaboration of local community members, an as comprehensive as possible documentation of present-day spoken Cappadocian, including digital recordings of every type of language usage, annotated transcriptions, a sociolinguistic survey and a comprehensive grammar and dictionary.
