Byron Fija on Ryukyuan Languages

"…in February 2009, UNESCO announced that the six languages of the Ryukyu Islands are endangered and it also warned that they would become extinct if no counter-measures will be taken. … While Japanese society treats these as ‘dialects,’ UNESCO declared that these are clearly languages in their own rights according to international standards."

Japanese … "Arigatougozaimasu" (thank you)

Luuchuan / Ryukyuan Languages:
Amami … "Arigatasamaryota"
Kunigami … "Tootu ganashi"
Uchinaaguchi … "Nifee deebiru"
