Language of the week: Zyphe

We’re up to z in the language of the week and I chose the last language in ethnologue’s list. However, Zyphe turns out to have been a bad choice for blogging about, since there’s very little information that I can find. A search under the alternate name Zophar on google scholar turns up 9 hits.

In short, it’s an enigmatic Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Burma and India by about 20,000 people. The amount of information available seems to be zippo.

We’ll start round the alphabet again next week. Remember, I take requests for languages of the week and welcome guest columns. If you want to write up your favourite language, be my guest.

  1. I’m glad you’re going around again. Would you mind posting a list of the languages you did the first time around to save us hunting for them?


  2. Hi Michael,
    Languages of the week is basically a list of previous posts.

  3. Let me know when you get around to doing “T”, I’ll be happy to provide a writeup on Tlingit.
