Coverage:Luofu and Lianhua Mountains, South China
She Zu, one of the southern Chinese minority ethic groups authorized by Chinese Central Government.
Description:The She-language (ISO-439-3: shx) is a minority language spoken in a few villages within he Luofu Mountains (23°13'N,114°02'E) and the Lianhua Mountains (23°03'N,115°10'E) in southern China. It has about 1500 speakers (2010). Many teenagers are switching to the Chinese dialect Hakka, and are not fluent in She, having forgotten most of the words and expressions of Traditional Environment Knowledge (TEK), which are now recalled only by some elderly men. The collection consists of comprehensive documentation of the two She dialects, Luofo and Lianhua, including descriptions of their phonological system, morpheme-syllables, a large set of words and expressions, syntactic sampling sentences, everyday sentences, and large varieties of discourses. There is a special focus on the vocabulary and discourse in the context of TEK. All digital data can be used for language teaching, linguistic research and other to aims.
