Research

The Computing and Minority Languages Group, led by Daniel Cunliffe, has been investigating the relationship between minority languages and Information Technology since 2000. To date this work has focussed mainly on the Welsh language, Cymraeg.

Areas of current research include: minority language communities online; Web sites for bilingual users; the language behaviour of bilingual users in online environments; and the use of web2.0 technologies by minority language communities. The extent to which Internet based technologies pose both a threat and an opportunity for minority languages is of particular interest.
