Another article about an endangered language that's being revived, this time in Singapore: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-38592216 I'd never heard of Kristang, but it's a very interesting story for anyone involved in supporting lesser-used languages.
Kristang is the language of the Portuguese Eurasians, a minority group descended from Portuguese settlers who arrived in the region in the 16th Century and married locals.
A unique creole of Portuguese and Malay, with elements of Chinese languages such as Mandarin and Hokkien, it was spoken by at least 2,000 people across the Malayan archipelago at its peak in the 19th Century.
But today there may be as little as 50 fluent speakers left, according to researchers' estimates....
Great to hear about this movement and the growing interest in the language — including the fact that they've been granted funding from the Singapore government!
