BRINGING A NUBIAN LANGUAGE BACK TO LIFE, THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
The App was launched in 2017, and also caters to those wishing to travel throughout the Nubian region, containing tourist spots, in the two Nubian dialects, that is, the Kinzi and the Visicci. One highlight of the App is its use of animated and colorful constructions to guide the user.
Yet, technology is now here to revitalize languages and, in short, to save the oral day. For example, the Nubi App has been produced as a repository of the Nubian language, culture, and history, and is quite exhaustive in this respect.
The Nubian App has become a popular piece of technology glopbally, despite is focus on a very localized language. Yet, the interest in the app far pervades the Nubian communitiy. Linguists, cultural workers, and others have taken an interest in the app, and its success rate. The App is designed to include lexical sets, sentence structures, and other objects that assist the user to learn the basics of the language and beyond.
The App clearly facilitates access to and the learning of the Nubian language in many ways. Yet, the producers of the App are not stopping there. They intend to collaborate with others globally to increasingly disseminate the language through a variety of means.
