  • The Council of Indigenous Peoples Republished Formosan Series to Lead the Trend of Research on Formosan

    “Austronesian Languages” is the world's most widely distributed language family and has as many as 1,200 languages. Among them, Taiwan’s indigenous language has a rich and diverse language family. Moreover, archaeologists believe that Taiwan is the origin of Austronesian Languages. In view of this, due to the fact that the Council of Indigenous Peoples published a series of books on the language structure of the indigenous people in cooperation with the Ministry of Education more than 10 years ago, along with the support of the integrated research plan of “Discussion on Taiwan Indigenous Language Types and Relevant Issues of Language Rejuvenation” issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2011, the Formosan Series of 14 grammars introduction was published in September 2016. The Council stated that the grammar introduction was loved and supported by the people and research scholars upon being published. In order to fully cover the 16 Indigenous Peoples’ languages, the scholars involved in the editing had studied, collected and recorded from time to time for nearly two years, so as to preserve the phonology, vocabulary, writing system and grammar structure of each people more precisely and perfectly. Therefore, the Council would once again completely edit the grammatical structure of the 16 peoples and publish the “Formosan Series” this year to continue to strengthen the foundation of academic research of Formosan languages. In order to implement President Tsai Ing-Wen’s policy of “Continuously Enriching the Language Teaching Materials for Indigenous Peoples”, the Council would plan a variety of language teaching materials for Indigenous Peoples. The timely reissue of the Formosan Series was expected to again drive and promote the investigation, preservation and communication of the languages among the nationalities in the Austronesian. It would also become an important reference for all ethnic groups or scholars to study Austronesian Languages and good and practical tool for people to learn indigenous languages. This set of books is sold in bookstores throughout the country (National Bo
