Summary of deposit
This is a collection of language resources in the form of Audio, video and text materials in Hrusso Aka, a language spoken by about 4000 speakers in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. It is an interesting language because of its dissimilarities with other languages in the region. It is highly endangered due to the ongoing rapid language shift to Hindi. The collection contains various genre of natural and elicited language forms such as stories, mythology, conversations, songs, dances, word lists etc, and is made possible by a long-standing collaboration between the researcher and members of the Hrusso Aka community. We hope to use this collection to eventually produce a grammar, a dictionary, primers, and digital media outputs. We also aim to train local youth and language consultants in orthography, literature development and language support.
