Versioning of data sets and metadata Over the last weeks, I have been thinking (on and off) about data versioning and how to represent versioning in metadata. One of the implementations that guided my thinking is the new data versioning introduced to Zenodo and its interaction with DataCite. User Types in Language Archives Some observations from planning, running, and developing an emerging languages archive (Part I) The case of लृ lr̥ and ऌ l̥ a note to the fringes of Sanskrit typography The Bagatha Language I just came across an article in The Hindu which reports on a new script for the Bagatha language that was developed by Professor Prasanna Sree. The language is reported to be spoken in the Araku valley region of the Vishakapatnam district. Given that I know a fair share about that part of India, it always baffles me that every now and then a new language or language name pops up. So what is this Bagatha language? Is it a distinct language of – probably – Indo-Aryan provenance? Is it a dialect of Telugu or Oriya? Is it a mere sociolinguistic variance of Telugu? Well nobody seems to know, or bothers to give details.
