I’ve now uploaded my Samoan vocabulary (~1200 words), and unfinished introductory guide. The audio works in Firefox on Ubuntu, but I haven’t tested it in other browsers.
I have around a thousand words and a few hundred examples which I haven’t recorded yet, and the guide/phrases contain many unfinished sections. If you are a native speaker of Samoan, or are interested in helping, then let me know.
You can find the section at: https://mike42.me/sm
Update: I’ve made MP3 versions of the audio files, and they can now play in all major browsers.
I’ve put the beginnings of my Samoan Language section online. It’s still about 6-months away from becoming useful, but you can see the start of it here.
The story is: I wanted to put my language notes online, but in the 21st century, there’s no way I’d do it without audio, and hyperlinks to a good dictionary.
There doesn’t seem to be anything like that online yet, so I took the liberty of creating a neat database combining the words with audio, definitions, and examples which can be embedded in the notes.
That opens up a lot of ideas for other things, but for now I still have a lot of data to collect. Back to work!
