Freelang Ainu-English dictionary

The Ainu language, also known as Aynu itak, is a language isolate formerly located on the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido of Japan, Sakhalin, Kuril Islands and tip of Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia. Today, the language is in danger of going extinct with no first language speakers on Sakhalin and 15 first language speakers on Hokkaido, though language revitalization efforts are underway in both places. However, of the 16,000 ethnic Ainu, of which 15,000 live in Japan, perhaps only about 1,000 are speakers of the Ainu language. There is also an unrelated language in western China called the Äynu language.
