Increased Interest in Reading their own Language
What good is a translation if people can’t read? What resources do people need to learn to read? A linguist told me, “We only have anecdotal evidence, but it seems like no more than about 10% of Zee* people can read much. We do see a growing interest though. And having resources like this dictionary seems to help.” My project of putting dictionaries online should help more. Some people have ability to use the national language, and can leverage that ability to work with their own language.
