The Repository and Workspace for Austroasiatic Intangible Heritage (RWAAI) is a digital multimedia resource committed to the preservation of research collections documenting the languages and cultures of communities from the Austroasiatic language family of Mainland Southeast Asia and India. Most of the languages in this highly diverse family are spoken in minority communities and are considered endangered. Our collections include audio and video recordings, transcriptions, field notes and images. All materials are archived and accessed free of charge. Some materials may be subject to special access conditions set by the depositors.
RWAAI was established with funding from the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond). It is hosted at the Lund University Humanities Lab and administered by the Centre for Languages and Literature. RWAAI is a member of DELAMAN, The Digital Endangered Languages and Music Archive Network.
