Preservation and Popularization of Buryat Language

Irkutsk State University joined the educational campaign dedicated to the preservation of Buryat language — the dictation "Erdem", which was held in Russian cities, as well as in Mongolia, Turkey and Israel on March 14. In Irkutsk the dictation was conducted at the Institute of Philology, Foreign Languages and Media Communication.

This year, the all-Buryat dictation "Erdem" (translated as "knowledge") was held for the fifth time. The text was dedicated to Ilya Baldynov, Hero of the Soviet Union, the military commander who fought in the Crimea, the Caucasus, and against the Japanese Kwantung army.

The dictation was attended by people whose main motivation was the opportunity to make a contribution to the preservation and popularization of Buryat language. Nelly Khamarkhanova was one of them. She had taken part in dictation for the fourth time, and each time she improved her results. 

"I was studying Buryat language for 10 years at school, and then, when I got older, I didn't need it. I realized how it is necessary and important to know the language of your nation only with time, with ages. I wish I had taught it to my children. My grandchildren are learning Buryat language in kindergarten and school now, but it is no longer their native language. However, I think everything is not lost. Now I am going back to my roots - I have participated in the dictation for the fourth time, I try to improve my literary Buryat language knowledge on my own. I hope to inspire my family with my example," - Nelly Khamarkhanova said.

Traditionally, the dictation is attended by students of ISU. At the University the Buryat Philology Department has successfully been  operating since 1944.

"This is the first time I participate in this competition and, you know, it is not very hard. Although, I think I have made a couple of mistakes due to my inattention. I and other girls are grateful to the organizers for the opportunity to test our knowledge, get new experience and, of course, meet new people. We are really happy that such events are being held for the development of our native Buryat language." - said Dulma Garmayeva, a second year student of ISU.
