Yesterday was International Mother Language Day, a day for celbrating linguistic diversity everywhere. Today, Popular Linguistics, a linguistics magazine aimed at the general public, has released it’s second issue. In it, a wonderful article about the language sitaution in India where (sadly), language endangerment is a problem. In fact, as this article highlights, we may be about to lose the last remaining language in the entire Greater Anadmanese language family. (Although, check the link for some good news, from India, too.)
While you’re there, be sure to check out the rest of this website. Popular Linguistics is a fantastic resource for those who are interested in learning more about language and linguistics.
