The project, which started in 2015, aims to develop a comprehensive corpus which makes the Abkhaz language accessible to scientific investigations from various perspectives (linguistics, literary studies, history, political and social sciences etc.). It also serves as a means for the long-term preservation of Abkhaz language documents in digital form.
Project partners are the Goethe University Frankfurt, Institute of Empirical Linguistics and the Centre for Civil Integration and Inter-Ethnic Relations (CCIIR).
The project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAid).
You can find a gentle introduction into working with the PALAG corpus on the page Using PALAG. More detailed information can be found on the Documentation page.
