Dnghu Adsoqiation, “Language Association”, about to be legally incorporated in Spain

Dnghu Adsoqiation (or “Language Association”, in English), is about to be legally incorporated in Spain under the name Asociación Dnghu. It is not the happiest day for Indo-European Revival Group, as our intention was always to obtain enough funds to create a private Foundation, but it is indeed good news for the future of Indo-European as a spoken language.

We have been working for almost a year already as ‘Dnghu Group’ or simply ‘Dnghu’, without any legal status, thus losing the few opportunities we had to obtain public subsidies for cultural institutions. It was not important, however, as there was no important community behind our projects.

But, enough is enough, and we cannot live just on tiny scholarships, always awaiting a change in the general mood toward our projects, and – having ahead the deadline of 2007’s regional public funding for cultural institutions – we deem it our best option right now to have a legal, non-profit organization applying for them.

We expect to receive public subsidies from regional, national and European administrations, and also investments and funds from banks and other private institutions; and we hope to control at the same time the problems that an association may pose on organizational and budgetary matters…

Indo-European language in Second Life, Orkut and Google Groups

Three new online projects:

1) We have created a new blog for our Second Life virtual world adventure, to post events and news of what happens to our Indo-European language revival project “in-world”. We are looking forward to collaborating with other avatars in proving the advantages of virtual education and virtual communities.

2) If you are a member of Orkut, you can also join our efforts in our Indo-European community.

3) We have also created an Indo-European language Group with Google, but we will wait to see if (and when) we use it just for Indo-European languages’ research, for Indo-European language revival, or even for our virtual community.
