Here we don’t speak, here we whistle: Designing a language support system for the Silbo Gomero

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents the design of a didactic application for a whistled form of language known as the Silbo Gomero (Island of La Gomera, Canarian Archipelago). After fifty years of almost total extinction this form of communication has been revived. As a response to this transformation, the need to develop didactic materials is presented as one of the main challenges encountered by the community.
