Yoruba Radios app. Yorùbá is a Niger–Congolanguage spoken in West Africa by approximately 20 millionspeakers. The native tongue of the Yoruba people, is spoken, amongother languages, in Nigeria, Benin, and Togo and in communities inother parts of Africa, Europe and the Americas. A variety of thelanguage, Lucumi, is used as the liturgical language of theSanteria religion of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.It is most closely related to the Itsekiri language spoken in theNiger-Delta and Igala spoken in central Nigeria.The ancestor of the Yoruba speakers is, according to their oraltraditions, Oduduwa. Although they share a common history, it isonly since the second half of the nineteenth century that thechildren of Oduduwa share one name. At some stage the term Yaribaor Yoruba came into use, first confined to the Ọyọ Kingdom; theterm was used among the Hausa (as it is today) but its origins areunclear. In part due to the development of a written standard, theterm Yoruba was extended to include all speakers of thelanguage.Linguistic means — including, for example,historical-comparative linguistics, glottochronology, anddialectology — used along with both traditional (oral) historicalsources and archaeological finds, have shed some light on thehistory of the Yorubas and their language before this point. TheNorth-West Yoruba dialects, for example, show more linguisticinnovations. According to some, this, combined with the fact thatSoutheast and Central Yoruba areas generally have oldersettlements, suggests a later date of immigration for NorthwestYoruba.native name èdè Yorùbá, 'the Yorùbá language'
Uyghur Radio Uyghur Radios 1.0
Uyghur Radios app. Uyghur formerly known asEastern Turkish, is a Turkic language with 8 to 11 millionspeakers, spoken primarily by the Uyghur people in the XinjiangUyghur Autonomous Region of Western China. Significant communitiesof Uyghur-speakers are located in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, andvarious other countries have Uyghur-speaking expatriatecommunities. Uyghur is an official language of the Xinjiang UyghurAutonomous Region, and is widely used in both social and officialspheres, as well as in print, radio, and television, and is used asa lingua franca by other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang.Uyghur belongs to the Uyghuric branch of the Turkic languagefamily, which also includes languages such as Salar and the moredistantly related Uzbek. Like many other Turkic languages, Uyghurdisplays vowel harmony and agglutination, lacks noun classes orgrammatical gender, and is a left-branching language withsubject–object–verb word order. More distinctly Uyghur processesinclude, especially in northern dialects, vowel reduction andumlauting. In addition to influence of other Turkic languages,Uyghur has historically been influenced strongly by Persian andArabic, and more recently by Mandarin Chinese and Russian.Uyghur began being written in the fifth century. TheArabic-derived writing system is the most common and the onlystandard in China, although other writing systems are used forauxiliary and historical purposes. Unlike most Arabic-derivedscripts, the Uyghur Arabic alphabet has mandatory marking of allvowels. Two Latin and one Cyrillic alphabet are also used, thoughto a much lesser extent. The Arabic and Latin alphabets have 32characters, while the Cyrillic alphabet adds two characters ⟨Я⟩ and⟨Ю⟩ to represent the sequences /ja/ and /ju/.The Old Turkic language is an ancient Turkic language used fromthe 7th to 13th centuries in Mongolia and the Xinjiang region, andis especially found among the Orkhon inscriptions and Turpan texts.It is the direct ancestor of the Uyghur Turkic languages, includingUyghur and the Uzbek language. By contrast, the Western Yugurlanguage, although in geographic proximity, is more closely relatedto the Siberian Turkic languages in Siberia.Probably around 1077, a scholar of the Turkic languages, Mahmudal-Kashgari from Kashgar in modern-day Xinjiang, published a Turkiclanguage dictionary and description of the geographic distributionof many Turkic languages, Divān-ul Lughat-ul Turk (English:Compendium of the Turkic Dialects; Uyghur: تۈركى تىللار دىۋانىTürki Tillar Divani). The book, described by scholars as an"extraordinary work," documents the rich literary tradition ofTurkic languages; it contains folk tales (including descriptions ofthe functions of shamans) and didactic poetry (propounding "moralstandards and good behaviour"), besides poems and poetry cycles ontopics such as hunting and love, and numerous other languagematerials.Old Turkic, through the influence of Perso-Arabic after the 13thcentury, developed into the Chagatai language, a literary languageused all across Central Asia until the early 20th century. AfterChaghatai fell into extinction, the standard versions of Uyghur andUzbek were developed from dialects in the Chagatai-speaking region,showing abundant Chaghatai influence. Uyghur language today showsconsiderable Persian influence as a result from Chagatai, includingnumerous Persian loanwords.The historical term "Uyghur" was appropriated for the languageformerly known as Eastern Turki by government officials in theSoviet Union in 1922 and in Xinjiang in 1934. Sergey Malov wasbehind the idea of renaming Turki to Uyghurs.(ئۇيغۇرچە, Uyghurche)
Mandarin Radio Mandarin Radios 1.0
Mandarin Radios app. In Chinese linguistics,Mandarin refers to a group of related varieties or dialects spokenacross most of northern and southwestern China. Because mostMandarin dialects are found in the north, the group is alsoreferred to, particularly among Chinese speakers, as the "northerndialect(s)" (simplified Chinese: 北方话; traditional Chinese: 北方 話;pinyin: Běifānghuà). A northeastern-dialect speaker and asouthwestern-dialect speaker can hardly communicate except throughthe standard language, mainly because of the differences in tone.Nonetheless, the variation within Mandarin is less significant thanthe much greater variation found within several other varieties ofChinese, and this is thought to be due to a relatively recentspread of Mandarin across China, combined with a greater ease oftravel and communication compared to the more mountainous south ofChina.Mandarin dialects, particularly the Beijing dialect, form thebasis of Standard Chinese, which is also referred to "Mandarin"(also referred to as Putonghua (simplified Chinese: 普通话;traditional Chinese: 普通話; pinyin: Pǔtōnghuà; literally "commonspeech") or Guoyu (Chinese: 國語; pinyin: Guóyǔ; literally "nationallanguage")). Standard Chinese or Standard Mandarin is the officiallanguage of the People's Republic of China and the Republic ofChina and one of the four official languages of Singapore. When theMandarin group is taken as one language, as is often done inacademic literature, it has more native speakers (nearly a billion)than does any other language. For most of Chinese history, thecapital has been within the Mandarin area, making these dialectsvery influential. Since the early 20th century, a form ofstandardized Mandarin (described above) has been the official andde facto national standard language in China and it is today one ofthe most frequently used varieties of Chinese among Chinesediaspora communities internationally.(simplified Chinese: 官话; traditional Chinese: 官話; pinyin:Guānhuà; literally "speech of officials")

Itsspeakers are located predominantly in Turkey and Northern Cypruswith smaller groups in Iraq, Greece, Bulgaria, the Republic ofMacedonia, Kosovo[a], Albania and other parts of Eastern Europe.Turkish is also spoken by several million people of immigrantorigin in Western Europe, particularly in Germany.The roots of the language can be traced to Central Asia, withthe first known written records dating back nearly 1,300 years. Tothe west, the influence of Ottoman Turkish—the variety of theTurkish language that was used as the administrative and literarylanguage of the Ottoman Empire—spread as the Ottoman Empireexpanded. In 1928, as one of Atatürk's Reforms in the early yearsof the Republic of Turkey, the Ottoman script was replaced with aLatin alphabet. Concurrently, the newly founded Turkish LanguageAssociation initiated a drive to reform and standardize thelanguage.The distinctive characteristics of Turkish are vowel harmony andextensive agglutination. The basic word order of Turkish issubject–object–verb. Turkish has no noun classes or grammaticalgender. Turkish has a strong T-V distinction and usage ofhonorifics. Turkish uses second-person pronouns that distinguishvarying levels of politeness, social distance, age, courtesy orfamiliarity toward the addressee. The plural second-person pronounand verb forms are used referring to a single person out ofrespect. On occasion, double plural second-person "sizler" may beused to refer to a much-respected person.Türkçe, also referred to as Istanbul TurkishTurkish is a member of the Oghuz group of languages, a subgroupof the Turkic languages. There is a high degree of mutualintelligibility between Turkish and the other Oghuz languages,including Azerbaijani, Turkmen, Qashqai, Gagauz, and Balkan GagauzTurkish. The Turkic family comprises some 30 living languagesspoken across Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Siberia. Somelinguists believe the Turkic languages to be a part of a largerAltaic language family. About 40% of all speakers of Turkiclanguages are native Turkish speakers. The characteristic featuresof Turkish, such as vowel harmony, agglutination, and lack ofgrammatical gender, are universal within the Turkic family and theAltaic languages.The earliest known Turkic inscriptions are the two monumentalOrkhon inscriptions found in modern Mongolia. Erected in honour ofthe prince Kul Tigin and his brother Emperor Bilge Khan, and datingback to some time between 732 and 735, they constitute anotherimportant early record. After the discovery and excavation of thesemonuments and associated stone slabs by Russian archaeologists inthe wider area surrounding the Orkhon Valley between 1889 and 1893,it became established that the language on the inscriptions was theOld Turkic language written using the Orkhon script, which has alsobeen referred to as "Turkic runes" or "runiform" due to asuperficial similarity to the Germanic runic alphabets.With the Turkic expansion during Early Middle Ages (c. 6th–11thcenturies), peoples speaking Turkic languages spread across CentralAsia, covering a vast geographical region stretching from Siberiato Europe and the Mediterranean. The Seljuqs of the Oghuz Turks, inparticular, brought their language, Oghuz Turkic—the directancestor of today's Turkish language—into Anatolia during the 11thcentury. Also during the 11th century, an early linguist of theTurkic languages, Mahmud al-Kashgari from the Kara-Khanid Khanate,published the first comprehensive Turkic language dictionary andmap of the geographical distribution of Turkic speakers in theCompendium of the Turkic Dialects (Ottoman Turkish: DivânüLügati't-Türk).

It is currently the largest ofthe North Germanic languages by numbers of speakers.Standard Swedish, used by most Swedish people, is the nationallanguage that evolved from the Central Swedish dialects in the 19thcentury and was well established by the beginning of the 20thcentury. While distinct regional varieties descended from the olderrural dialects still exist, the spoken and written language isuniform and standardized. Some dialects differ considerably fromthe standard language in grammar and vocabulary and are not alwaysmutually intelligible with Standard Swedish. These dialects areconfined to rural areas and are spoken primarily by small numbersof people with low social mobility. Though not facing imminentextinction, such dialects have been in decline during the pastcentury, despite the fact that they are well researched and theiruse is often encouraged by local authorities.The standard word order is subject–verb–object, though this canoften be changed to stress certain words or phrases. Swedishmorphology is similar to English; that is, words have comparativelyfew inflections. There are two genders, two grammatical cases, anda distinction between plural and singular. Older analyses posit thecases nominative and genitive and there are some remains ofdistinct accusative and dative forms as well. Adjectives arecompared as in English, and are also inflected according to gender,number and definiteness. The definiteness of nouns is markedprimarily through suffixes (endings), complemented with separatedefinite and indefinite articles. The prosody features both stressand in most dialects tonal qualities. The language has acomparatively large vowel inventory. Swedish is also notable forthe voiceless dorso-palatal velar fricative, a highly variableconsonant phoneme.svenska

Spanish is one of the six official languagesof the United Nations, and is used as an official language by theEuropean Union and Mercosur.Spanish is a part of the Ibero-Romance group that evolved fromseveral dialects of spoken Latin in central-northern Iberia aroundthe ninth century and gradually spread with the expansion of theKingdom of Castile (present northern Spain) into central andsouthern Iberia during the later Middle Ages. Early in its history,the Spanish vocabulary was enriched by its contact with Basque andArabic, and the language continues to adopt foreign words from avariety of other languages, as well as developing new words.Spanish was taken most notably to the Americas as well as to Africaand Asia-Pacific with the expansion of the Spanish Empire betweenthe fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, where it became the mostimportant language for government and trade.Due to its increasing presence in the demographics and popularculture of the United States, particularly in the fast-growingstates of the Sun Belt, Spanish is the most popular second languagelearned by native speakers of American English. The increasingpolitical stability and economies of many larger Hispanophonenations, the language's immense geographic extent in Latin Americaand Europe for tourism, and the growing popularity of warmer, moreaffordable, and culturally vibrant retirement destinations found inthe Hispanic world have contributed significantly to the growth oflearning Spanish as a foreign language across the globe.Spanish is the third most commonly used language on the Internetafter English and Mandarin. It is also the second most studiedlanguage and second language in international communication, afterEnglish, in the world.The Spanish Royal Academy, on the other hand, currently uses theterm español in its publications but from 1713 to 1923 called thelanguage castellano.Two etymologies for español have been suggested. The SpanishRoyal Academy Dictionary derives the term from the Provençal wordespaignol, and that in turn from the Medieval Latin wordHispaniolus, 'from—or pertaining to—Hispania'. Other authoritiesattribute it to a supposed medieval Latin *hispaniōne, with thesame meaning. The Diccionario panhispánico de dudas (a languageguide published by the Spanish Royal Academy) states that, althoughthe Spanish Royal Academy prefers to use the term español in itspublications when referring to the Spanish language, both terms,español and castellano, are regarded as synonymous and equallyvalid.The name castellano is preferred in all of Spanish-speakingSouth America except Colombia. The term español is more commonlyused to refer to the language as a whole when relating to a globalcontext.español

Urdu Radio Urdu Radios 1.0
Urdu Radios app. Urdu is a register of theHindi-Urdu language that is identified with Muslims in South Asia.Urdu is the national language and lingua franca of Pakistan. It isalso widely spoken in India, where it is one of the 22 scheduledlanguages and an official language of five states. Based on theKhariboli dialect of Delhi, Urdu is derived from Sanskrit anddeveloped under the influence of Persian, Arabic, and Turkic overthe course of almost 900 years. It began to take shape in what isnow Uttar Pradesh, India during the Delhi Sultanate (1206–1527),and continued to develop under the Mughal Empire (1526–1858). Urduis mutually intelligible with Standard Hindi (or Hindi-Urdu) spokenin India. Both languages share the same Indic base and are sosimilar in phonology and grammar that they appear to be onelanguage. The combined population of Hindi and Urdu speakers isthe fourth largest in the world.Mughals hailed from the Barlas tribe which was of Mongol origin,the tribe had embraced Turkic and Persian culture, and resided inTurkestan and Khorasan. Their mother tongue was the Chaghatailanguage (known to them as Turkī, "Turkic") and they were equallyat home in Persian, the lingua franca of the Timurid elite. butafter their arrival in the Indian subcontinent, the need tocommunicate with local inhabitants led to use of Indic languageswritten in the Persian alphabet, with some literary conventions andvocabulary retained from Persian and Turkic; this eventually becamea new standard called Hindustani, which is the direct predecessorof Urdu. Urdu is often contrasted with Hindi. Apart from religiousassociations, the differences are largely restricted to thestandard forms: Standard Urdu is conventionally written in theNastaliq style of the Persian alphabet and relies heavily onPersian and Arabic as a source for technical and literaryvocabulary, whereas Standard Hindi is conventionally written inDevanāgarī and draws on Sanskrit. However, both have large numbersof Persian, Arabic, and Sanskrit words, and most linguists considerthem to be two standardized forms of the same language, andconsider the differences to be sociolinguistic, though a fewclassify them separately. Mutual intelligibility decreases inliterary and specialized contexts which rely on educatedvocabulary. Due to religious nationalism since the partition ofBritish India and continued communal tensions, native speakers ofboth Hindi and Urdu frequently assert them to be completelydistinct languages, despite the numerous similarities between thetwo in a colloquial setting. However, it is quite easy todistinguish differences in vocabulary.The word Urdu is derived from the same Turkish word that hasgiven English horde. Urdu arose in the contact situation whichdeveloped from the invasions of the Indian subcontinent by Turkicdynasties from the 11th century onwards, first as Sultan Mahmud ofthe Ghaznavid empire conquered Punjab in the early 11th century,then when the Ghurids invaded northern India in the 12th century,and most decisively with the establishment of the DelhiSultanate.The official language of the Ghurids, Delhi Sultanate, theMughal Empire, and their successor states, as well as the culturedlanguage of poetry and literature, was Persian, while the languageof religion was Arabic. Most of the Sultans and nobility in theSultanate period were Turks from Central Asia who spoke Turkic astheir mother tongue. The Mughals were also Chagatai, but lateradopted Persian. Muzaffar Alam asserts that Persian became thelingua franca of the empire under Akbar for various political andsocial factors due to its non-sectarian and fluid nature. However,the armies, merchants, preachers, Sufis, and later the court, alsoincorporated the local people and the medieval Hindu literarylanguage, Braj Bhasha.Urdu: اردو

Tatar Radios app. The Tatar language is aTurkic language spoken by the Tatars of historical Kazan Khanate,including modern Tatarstan and Bashkiria. It should not be confusedwith the Crimean Tatar language, to which it is remotely related.Tatar is spoken in Russia (about 5.3 million people), CentralAsia, Ukraine, Poland, China, Finland, Turkey and othercountries.Tatar is also native for some thousands of Maris. Mordva'sQaratay group also speak Tatar. 94% of ethnic Tatar claimedknowledge of Tatar language during the 2002 census.Tatar, along with Russian, is the official language of theRepublic of Tatarstan. The official script of Tatar language isbased on the Cyrillic script with some additional letters.Sometimes other scripts are used, mostly Latin and Arabic. Allofficial sources in Tatarstan use Cyrillic at their web-sites andpublishing. In other cases, where Tatar has no official status, theuse of a specific alphabet depends on the preference of the author.Guides in Tatarstan are published in two alphabets.The Tatar language was made a de facto official language inRussia in 1917, but only in the Tatar Soviet Socialist Republic.Tatar is also considered the official language in short-livedIdel-Ural State, briefly formed during the Russian Civil War. Oneshould note, however, that Bolshevist Russia did not recognizeofficial languages as such; however, there were a number oflanguages that could be used in trial in some republics. In theSoviet era, Tatar was such a language inBashkortostan, Mari El and other regions of the Russian SFSR.The usage of Tatar declined from the 1930s onwards. In the 1980sit was not studied in city schools, not even by Tatar pupils.Although the language was used in rural schools, Tatar-speakingpupils had little chance to enter a university, because all highereducation was in Russian.Tatar is no longer classified as an endangered language,although it is still a low prestige language. Higher education inTatar can only be found in Tatarstan, and is restricted to thehumanities. In other regions Tatar is primarily a spoken languageand the number of speakers as well as their proficiency tends todecrease. Tatar is popular as a written language only inTatar-speaking areas where schools with Tatar language lessons aresituated. On the other hand, Tatar is the only language in use inrural districts of Tatarstan.татар теле, татарча, tatar tele, tatarça), or more specificallyKazan Tatar

Yiddish Radio Yiddish Radios 1.0
Yiddish Radios app. Yiddish is a High Germanlanguage of Ashkenazi Jewish origin, spoken throughout the world.It developed as a fusion of German dialects with Hebrew, Slaviclanguages and traces of Romance languages. It is written in theHebrew alphabet.The language originated in the Ashkenazi culture that developedfrom about the 10th century in the Rhineland and then spread toCentral and Eastern Europe and eventually to other continents. Inthe earliest surviving references to it, the language is calledלשון־אַשכּנז (loshn-ashknez = "language of Ashkenaz") and טײַטש(taytsh, a variant of tiutsch, the contemporary name for thelanguage otherwise spoken in the region of origin, now calledMiddle High German). In common usage, the language is calledמאַמע־לשון (mame-loshn, literally "mother tongue"), distinguishingit from Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic, which are collectively termedלשון־קודש (loshn-koydesh, "holy tongue"). The term "Yiddish" didnot become the most frequently used designation in the literatureof the language until the 18th century.For a significant portion of its history, Yiddish was theprimary spoken language of the Ashkenazi Jews and once spanned abroad dialect continuum from Western Yiddish to three major groupswithin Eastern Yiddish, namely Litvish, Poylish and Ukrainish.Eastern and Western Yiddish are most markedly distinguished by theextensive inclusion of words of Slavic origin in the Easterndialects. While Western Yiddish has few remaining speakers, Easterndialects remain in wide use.Yiddish is written and spoken in many Orthodox Jewishcommunities around the world, although there are also a number ofOrthodox Jews who do not know Yiddish. It is a home language inmost Hasidic communities, where it is the first language learned inchildhood, used in schools and in many social settings. Yiddish isalso the academic language of the study of the Talmud according tothe tradition of the great Lithuanian Yeshivohs.Yiddish is also used in the adjectival sense to designateattributes of Ashkenazic Jewish culture (for example, Yiddishcooking and Yiddish music).The Ashkenazi culture that took root in 10th century CentralEurope derived its name from Ashkenaz (Genesis 10:3), the medievalHebrew name for the territory centred on what is now thewesternmost part of Germany. Its geographic extent did not coincidewith the German Christian principalities; Ashkenaz includedNorthern France. It also bordered on the area inhabited by theSephardim, or Spanish Jews, which ranged into Southern France.Ashkenazi culture later spread into Eastern Europe.The first language of European Jews may have been Aramaic,the vernacular of the Jews in Roman-era Palestine and ancient andearly medieval Mesopotamia. The widespread use of Aramaic among thelarge non-Jewish Syrian trading population of the Roman provinces,including those in Europe, would have reinforced the use of Aramaicamong Jews engaged in trade. In Roman times, many of the Jewsliving in Rome and Southern Italy appear to have beenGreek-speakers, and this is reflected in some Ashkenazi personalnames (e.g., Kalonymus). Much work needs to be done, though, tofully analyze the contributions of those languages to Yiddish.Nothing is known about the vernacular of the earliest Jews inGermany, but several theories have been put forward. It isgenerally accepted that it was likely to have contained elementsfrom other languages of the Near East and Europe, absorbed throughdispersion. Since many settlers came via France and Italy, it isalso likely that the Romance-based Jewish languages of thoseregions were represented. Traces remain in the contemporary Yiddishvocabulary: for example, בענטשן (bentshn, to bless), from the Latinbenedicere; לייענען (leyenen, to read), from the Latin legere; andthe personal names Anshl, cognate to Angel or Angelo; Bunim(probably from "bon homme").(ייִדיש yidish or אידיש idish, literally "Jewish")

Wolof Radio Wolof Radios 1.0
Wolof Radios app. Wolof is a language ofSenegal, The Gambia, and Mauritania, and the native language of theWolof people. Like the neighbouring languages Serer and Fula, itbelongs to the Senegambian branch of the Niger–Congo languagefamily. Unlike most other languages of Sub-Saharan Africa, Wolof isnot a tonal language.Wolof originated as the language of the Lebou people. It is themost widely spoken language in Senegal, spoken natively by theWolof people (40% of the population) but also by most otherSenegalese as a second language. Wolof dialects vary geographicallyand between rural and urban areas. "Dakar-Wolof", for instance, isan urban mixture of Wolof, French, and Arabic."Wolof" is the standard spelling, and may refer to the Wolofpeople or to Wolof culture. Older French publications may use thespelling Ouolof, and some English publications Wollof,predominantly referring to (anglophone) Gambian Wolof. Prior to the20th century, the forms Volof and Olof were used.Wolof words in English are believed to include yam, from Wolofnyami "to eat food", and hip or hep, as hip cat, from Wolof hepikat"one who has his eyes open" or "one who is aware".Wolof is spoken by more than 10 million people and about 40percent (approximately 5 million people) of Senegal's populationspeak Wolof as their native language. Increased mobility, andespecially the growth of the capital Dakar, created the need for acommon language: today, an additional 40 percent of the populationspeak Wolof as a second or acquired language. In the whole regionfrom Dakar to Saint-Louis, and also west and southwest of Kaolack,Wolof is spoken by the vast majority of the people. Typically whenvarious ethnic groups in Senegal come together in cities and towns,they speak Wolof. It is therefore spoken in almost every regionaland departmental capital in Senegal. Nevertheless, the officiallanguage of Senegal is French.As stated above, great care should be taken when forming anopinion based on the figures prescribed here. These figures aremisleading because other tribes who have been Wolofized and speakthe Wolof language are added to this figure when in fact they arenot Wolofs at all. Furthermore, not only is Serer and Fula justlike Wolof etc. recognised and taught in schools, not everyonespeaks or understands Wolof. There are Serers, Fulas, Mandinkas,Jolas etc. who cannot speak or understand Wolof. Moreover, not onlyWolof people live in cities and towns. There are cities and townswhich are predominantly Serers just as there are cities and townswhich are predominantly Wolofs. Furthermore, there are Wolofvillages just as there are Serer villages.In the Gambia, about three percent of the population speak Wolofas a first language, but Wolof has a disproportionate influencebecause of its prevalence in Banjul, the Gambia's capital, where 25percent of the population use it as a first language. InSerrekunda, the Gambia's largest town, although only a tinyminority are ethnic Wolofs, approximately 10 percent of thepopulation speaks and/or understands Wolof. The official languageof the Gambia is English; Mandinka (40 percent), Wolof (7 percent)and Fula (15 percent) are as yet not used in formal education.In Mauritania, about seven percent (approximately 185,000people) of the population speak Wolof. There, the language is usedonly around the southern coastal regions. Mauritania's officiallanguage is Arabic; French is used as a lingua franca in additionto Wolof and Arabic.

Scots Radio Scots Radios 1.0
Scots Radios app. Scots is the Germaniclanguage variety spoken in Lowland Scotland and parts of Ulster(where the local dialect is known as Ulster Scots). It is sometimescalled Lowland Scots to distinguish it from Scottish Gaelic, theCeltic language variety spoken in most of the western Highlands andin the Hebrides.Since there are no universally accepted criteria fordistinguishing languages from dialects, scholars and otherinterested parties often disagree about the linguistic, historicaland social status of Scots. Although a number of paradigms fordistinguishing between languages and dialects do exist, these oftenrender contradictory results. Focused broad Scots is at one end ofa bipolar linguistic continuum, with Scottish Standard English atthe other. Consequently, Scots is often regarded as one of theancient varieties of English, but with its own distinct dialects.Alternatively, Scots is sometimes treated as a distinct Germaniclanguage, in the way Norwegian is closely linked to, yet distinctfrom, Danish.A 2010 Scottish Government study of "public attitudes towardsthe Scots language" found that 64% of respondents (around 1,000individuals being a representative sample of Scotland's adultpopulation) "don't really think of Scots as a language", but italso found that "the most frequent speakers are least likely toagree that it is not a language (58%) and those never speakingScots most likely to do so (72%)". In the 2011 Scottish census, aquestion on Scots language ability was featured.

Tibetan Radio Tibetan Radios 1.0
Tibetan Radios app. The Tibetan languages area cluster of mutually-unintelligible Tibeto-Burman languages spokenprimarily by Tibetan peoples who live across a wide area of easternCentral Asia bordering the Indian subcontinent, including theTibetan Plateau and the northern Indian subcontinent in Baltistan,Ladakh, Nepal, Sikkim, and Bhutan. The classical written form is amajor regional literary language, particularly for its use inBuddhist literature.For political reasons, the dialects of U-Tsang otherwise knownas central Tibet (including Lhasa), Khams, and Amdo are considereddialects of a single Tibetan language, while Dzongkha, Sikkimese,Sherpa, and Ladakhi are generally considered to be separatelanguages, although their speakers may consider themselves to beethnically Tibetan. However, this does not reflect linguisticreality: Dzongkha and Sherpa, for example, are closer to LhasaTibetan than Khams or Amdo are.The Tibetan languages are spoken by approximately 6 million pluspeople. With the worldwide spread of Tibetan Buddhism, the Tibetanlanguage has spread into the western world and can be found in manyBuddhist publications and prayer materials; with some westernstudents learning the language for translation of Tibetan texts.Lhasa Tibetan is spoken by approximately 150,000 exile speakers whohave moved from modern-day Tibet to India and other countries.Tibetan is also spoken by groups of ethnic minorities in Tibet whohave lived in close proximity to Tibetans for centuries, butnevertheless retain their own languages and cultures. Although someof the Qiangic peoples of Kham are classified by the People'sRepublic of China as ethnic Tibetans, Qiangic languages are notTibetan, but rather form their own branch of the Tibeto-Burmanlanguage family.Classical Tibetan was not a tonal language, but some varietiessuch as Central and Khams Tibetan have developed tone. (Amdo andLadakhi/Balti are without tone.) Tibetan morphology can generallybe described as agglutinative, although Classical Tibetan waslargely analytic.Nicolas Tournadre (2008) describes the language situation ofTibetan as follows:Based on my 20 years of field work throughout the Tibetanlanguage area and on the existing literature, I estimate that thereare 220 'Tibetan dialects' derived from Old Tibetan and nowadaysspread across 5 countries: China, India, Bhutan, Nepal and Pakistan[which] may be classed within 25 dialect groups, i. e. groups whichdo not allow mutual intelligibility. The notion of ‘dialect group’is equivalent to the notion of language but does not entail anystandardization. Thus if we set aside the notion ofstandardization, I believe it would be more appropriate to speak of25 languages derived from Old Tibetan. This is not only aterminological issue but it gives an entirely different perceptionof the range of variation. When we refer to 25 languages, we makeclear that we are dealing with a family comparable in size to theRomance family which has 19 groups of dialects.According to Bradley, these languages cluster as follows:Ladakhi ("Western Archaic Tibetan", including Balti and Purik)(non-tonal)Central Tibetan (tonal)Western Innovative Tibetan, primarily in Ladakh and the borderareasDbus AKA Ü (alternate romanisations of [y˧˥˧ʔ]) (Central Tibetanproper), in Ngari, Ü-Tsang (including Lhasa), and northern Nepalborder areasNorthern Tibetan: Nagchu and southern QinghaiSouthern Tibetan: Southern Ü-Tsang, Sikkim, and Bhutan, such asDzongkha, Sherpa, SikkimeseKhams Tibetan (tonal); spoken in Qinghai, Chamdo, Sichuan,YunnanAmdo Tibetan (non-tonal); spoken in Qinghai, Gansu, SichuanVarying classifications are found. Some group Khams and Amdotogether as Eastern Tibetan (not to be confused with East Bodish,which is not ethnically Tibetan). Others break up CentralTibetan.
