iTunes Store offers Cherokee language revitalization application


Thornton Media Inc. has developed an iTunes application that allows the Cherokee language and other indigenous languages to be downloaded onto handheld game consoles, MP3 players and cell phones. Company officials – who also created RezWorld, a video game designed to revitalize Native languages – said the downloadable language software is called Language Pal and can program audio recordings of an indigenous language in multiple dialects from multiple speakers.
