Great news for those learning Greenlandic [08 Sep 2011|06:27pm]
"...I can assure you that I am going to produce DVD module II. As a matter of facts have I spent all day today in the TV studio of Nuuk TV recording lessons - lots of lessons. Our local TV station has namely sponsored the whole shooting of module II (worth a huge bag of money in a low-budget production as mine. Professional studio-time costs a fortune) thus giving me the economic freedom to literally load the DVD to the last byte without having to rise the price considerably.

It will be a bilingual monolith. The English part will include about 5 hours of video, 50 or so exercises, around 20 finite state automata and a bilingual corpus of around 30.000 morphologically and syntactically tagged wordforms. And the same amount of material also in Danish.

You may want to check out http://www.learngreenlandic.com where I have included a preannouncement of it.

...a link to my project's website where you can find quite a number of open source goodies including a word generator and an online dictionary between Greenlandic-Danish-English. Check out http://www.oqaaserpassualeriffik.org"

- Per Langgard, creator-guy of a great DVD/software program for learning Greenlandic (in Danish and English), although the first DVD is mostly pronunciation with some basic grammar.

Translating my Livejournal page [18 Oct 2006|03:39pm]

Hey, I'm translating my Livejournal into Kalaallisut and therefore I want to know what the following word(s) (groups) are in Kalaallisut:
- User info;
- Memories;
- Friends;
- Archive;
- My deviantART page (I'm adding my own deviantART page to the link section, so)

My Greenlandic isn't that good and I hope you'll be able to translate it.
Thanks in advance. :')


anthem [10 Oct 2006|09:22am]

Hi! I've been searching lately for the Greenlandic national anthem, Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit, in MP3 with voices singing the anthem. But I found only MIDIs and notes for that. Has anyone got a version with voices? I'd be very thankful for any kind of help.

Greenlandic translation [13 Sep 2006|07:27pm]

I'd be very grateful indeed if someone here is able to translate the phrase "There are no people living in Greenland" into Greenlandic for me. I need hardly say that it's for a bit of a joke, given the context.


Help me, please [03 Aug 2006|04:57pm]
I search for my way to the North. I do not want to explain why I need to leave on the North, but believe me, I have reason.
Therefore I search any work for myself and for my husband in Alaska, Antarctica, Antarctic Region, Greenland is the best way. Our trades don’t very popular in the north: I the system administrator, my husband the artist. But we are ready to do any work.
Write to me, please if you knows organization where helps me. It is very important.

Does anybody have any Greenlandic songs they wouldn't mind sharing? Excerpts, clips, full songs, anything?

Just thought I'd say hi. Listened to the song that one of the previous posters uploaded, and I was wondering if anyone has a translation or transcription of the lyrics, etc. I'd be curious to see a written representation of what I'm hearing, since there are some rather interesting sounds being sung. :)

As for any introductory things (don't know if you do this on this community), I guess you could say that I've got an interest in those who live in the north.

I've finally gotten around to uploading one of Tupaarnaq's songs. It's called Hingitat, and you can download it by right clicking here -> and choosing to "save target as."

PS. Thanks to rube for helping me to convert this file to mp3 :)

Here are some pictures from Tuppaarnaq's Summer Tour. For those of you who don't know who she is, she's a former member of the group Zedna (Julie Berthelsen used to be in it as well.) I prefer her music over Julie's, mainly because her songs are more influenced by rock and traditional Greenlandic music, as opposed to pop.

What I Got In The Mail... [09 Jun 2004|11:57pm]

The other day, I received two Greenlandic CDs... and I have yet to hear them. One is a Julie Berthelsen CD Single "Kalaallit Nunaat Pillugu" and a full length album by Tupaarnaq, entitled "Illit". I doubt I'll like the music, but the fact that they are in Greenlandic is really awesome.

Hi, Greenland! :-)) [27 May 2004|11:31am]

I from Belorussia. Please, forgive my very incorrect English :-((.
I am interested in living history, medieval embroidery and textiles. I make reconstruction of clothes from Herjolfsness. Such a dress (http://www.mv.helsinki.fi/home/sojonen/netmus/HERJOLFSNES/hahmo.jpg http://www.mv.helsinki.fi/home/sojonen/netmus/HERJOLFSNES/hahmo2.jpg )
They are kept in The National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen
"The graveyard at the Herjolfsnes church contained the remains of some of the original Norse inhabitants. A few were found in coffins, but most were buried simply, wrapped in shrouds. The shrouds were items of clothing, some torn into pieces, some almost intact, and generally assumed to be the personal clothing of that person. There were numerous hoods and hosen, but the best-known finds were the dresses. The dresses were both male and female, adult and child. Dr. Nörlund includes a great deal of research to date these dresses, concluding that most of the finds are consistent with very late 13th c. to very early 15th c. clothing as seen in numerous paintings, illuminations, statuary, and brasses from that period." (c)
Somebody from interlocutors knows about this district of a detail?
Interest not the dry official data, and something more animated - personal impressions.
Whether there are in Greenland museums where household things of medieval inhabitants of island are kept? In our country there is a big shortage of a material on culture of medieval Greenland :-((
I write very chaotically. I am overflown with emotions %)))

Greetings! [15 May 2004|10:44am]

Hello! I'm not a Greenlander, or even a Dane, but an American woman, married to a Dane, who made many Greenlandic friends while I was at the Sproghøjskole på Kalø. I'll be seeing them again on the 28th of May; if you'd like, I could make some cards with the URL for this community and hand them out to them.


Info [15 May 2004|12:07am]

Inuugujoq, kutaa! I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows that I updated the info section with a bunch of Kalaallit Nunaat related links that are definately worth your time. If anyone here knows of any more links that I could add, please don't hesitate to tell me.
