Resource documentation for Okinawan （沖縄語）. Some resources obviously overlap between classifications, so I attempted to put them where they best belonged. For instance, "An Introduction to Ryukyuan Languages" is clearly a grammatical reference, but it has some excellent excerpts that could go to a corpus.
- Dictionary of Okinawan: Functions more like a list of words. Provided by Okinawa Tourism Association. Copyrighted.
- Another dictionary, although this one is more for looking up specific words. Provided by "Ajima Okinawa"; seems like an Okinawa trivia website.
- Okinawago Jiten: seems like the canonical hard-copy "big" dictionary for Okinawan. I don't have it, but UPenn does.
- An Introduction to Ryukyuan Languages: An authority on the Okinawan language (among others).
- The Okinawan Language (a Synchronic Description): Another thorough reference on Okinawan syntax/usage.
- NP-ellipsis: a comparative syntax of Japanese and Okinawan: a useful study on key differences between Okinawan and Japanese. Licensed by SpringerLink.
- A Reconstruction of Old Okinawan: A Corpus-Based Approach: A study on "Old Okinawan", which I am not clear on whether is the same as "Okinawan". Worth investigating and preserving for posterity, if nothing else.
- Synchrony and diachrony of Okinawan Kakari Musubi in comparative perspective with premodern Japanese: An interesting examination of the syntactic phenomenon of kakari musubi in Okinawan.
- Nominalization in Asian Languages : Diachronic and typological perspectives: Another comparative text.
- Phonetic Fusions in the Language of Okinawa and a Comparison with Mainland Japanese: An analysis and argument for the separation of Japanese and Okinawan, establishing it as a language, rather than a dialect.
- The grammar section of Wikipedia: This is a goldmine of words and example phrases, but I am not sure how to credit the source, as I don't see one. I need to figure out a way to use this.
- List of common phrases and proverbs: from a website devoted to Okinawan martial arts. They mostly cite the now-dead okinawa.com.
- List of words compiled by "Rich Boyden" and "Ricky Rose". Contacts for both individuals are on the page.
