Welcome to the Lower Sorbian part of the DoBeS archive.

Lower Sorbian is a West Slavic language (see Language) spoken in Lower Lusatia, Germany (see People & Culture).

The presented project was carried out in 2010-2015 in the Sorbian Institute, Cottbus, Germany (see Team) with the aim to obtain and document speech performance of the native speakers of this endangered language.

As a result, more than 100 hours of interviews and other recordings have been made publicly available through The Language Archive. All recordings are followed by an orthographic transcription and a German translation; selected samples are also transcribed phonetically and translated into English.
