In a globalized world where hundreds of languages are expected to become extinct in the 21st century, it is highly relevant to analyze the viability and continuity of threatened languages. The purpose of this symposium is to discuss this impending loss to humankind from a multidisciplinary perspective.
We invite contributions for the assessment of this process from Linguistics, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Education, and related fields. Equally welcome is the participation of practitioners in language revitalization efforts. We wish to combine theoretical and practical perspectives for the analysis of the linguistic and social processes involved in language death, endangerment, documentation and revitalization.
Possible topics include the following:
- The genetic and areal distribution of endangered
- Structural characteristics of endangered
- Cultural characteristics of endangered language
- Causes of language endangerment
- Documentation of endangered languages
- Language revitalization programs and practices
- Academic ethics and advocacy in language
