Endangered langblrs #2

This is the second post of this kind. As in the last post #1 I want to introduce you to important helpers of revitalising and documenting endangered and lesser-used languages here on tumblr. So, I will name some langblrs that deal partly or wholly with those languages. If you know more of such langblrs please tell me right away and I will mention them in a next post.

Greenlandic

Kalaallisut is a lesser-used language and certainly a minority language within the Danish realm.

@tulunnguaq

Laz language

ლაზური ენა, lazuri ena, or ჭანური ენა, ç̌anuri ena is an endangered Kartvelian language spoken by 22,000 people in Turkey and Georgia that is related to Georgian. 

@anadolular

Chickasaw

Chikashshanompa’ is a Muscogean language that is currently spoken by less than 75 people in Oklahoma.

@fractalrainbow

Irish

Gaeilge is the national language of Ireland but only has around 74,000 mother speakers.

@teangacha
@chronically-chilll
@seanfhocail

Scottish Gaelic

Gàidhlig is also a Celtic language as Irish is and is spoken in Scotland and Canada by only 57,000 mother speakers.

@ambi-alba
@selchieproductions
@sgribhisg

Cornish

Kernowek is a revived Celtic language that has gained some new mother speakers again.

@fortheloveoflanguistics (Also about language revitalisation in general)

Sami languages

Saami languages are Uralic languages, related to Finnish and Estonian, and are spoken by around 30,000 mother speakers.

@selchieproductions (Southern Swedish Saami)
@fara-learns-sami (Northern Saami)

I really hope that this will inspire more of you to submit other blogs that deal with a certain endangered, lesser-used or minority/regional language or with language endangerment and revitalisation in general. The network and possibilities of tumblr are such good resources for languages that have hardly any visibility elsewhere and especially no resources to learn with. So, let’s spread this message further, so I will get more submission of endangered langblrs to share with you. Thanks a lot!

True Otaku Group chat?

I really wanna make a group chat. Just for true anime lovers. So that. No matter where you are, you will always have someone to talk to. This can be the birth of true friendship. Even if it’s online. So. If you want to be involved. Just reblog this. Cause sometimes. Just having someone to talk to about things you love, can be the sole thing that makes your day brighter ❤

Fic Rating: Explicit

Tags: shameless smut, fluff, AU: canon divergence, Natasha is a good bro, tony stark is extra

Characters: Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanov, Tony Stark, various Avengers, original characters

Word Count: 11.2K
Summary: After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, the newly reformed Avengers are in Bucharest on an intel-finding mission, when Steve crosses paths with someone he knows, oh so well indeed. Bucky is no longer the Winter Soldier, and seems to be happily living a new life in Romania, unburdened by his past.

But Steve has never been able to let things lie when it comes to Bucky, and this new, fragile life is about to get turned upside down.
