LING 11.06 Language Revitalization

There is currently a measurable reduction in the amount of linguistic diversity around the world as many languages become moribund or cease to be spoken. With greater awareness of language endangerment and attrition, there have been counteracting efforts to maintain and revive the use of many of these languages. In this course we examine the phenomena of language endangerment and language revitalization. We will evaluate the socio-historical reasons for language shift, the rationale for language revitalization and the relative degrees of success in different revitalization programs. There will be a focus on the languages of North America.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
