ABOUT THE PROJECT

Who We are?

We are a group of RTA researchers and students who are interested in languages and cultures and who have focused on supplementing the Latgalian language corps (MuLa) and creating a new speech corps during the project of the State Research Program (2020-2022). If you have any questions or suggestions, contact us!

Volūdys, kuruom daškierta itei apdraudiejuma pakuope, lītoj ari vairums bārnu, bet atseviškuos jūmuos volūdys lītuojums var byut īrūbežuots."

"Focusing on norms and correctness may discourage young people from using the language and make fluent elder speakers unsure of their competence. Regional variation (dialects) makes Latgalian richer; the same may be true for other types of variation, if accepted."
