About Us

Phonemica is a platform for stories told in local vernaculars. Stories are contributed by our users, who record, upload and transcribe regional lore: nursery rhymes & childhood games, preparation of local foods, humorous anecdotes, local history, and much more.

If you have a friend or relative who is a good storyteller, you too can contribute. You can also transcribe and translate stories on the site. Just register, go to a recording in a dialect you understand, and click on the transcript below to transcribe. Phonemica is a community project; we need your help to grow.
