Message 1: ABC News story on endangered languages

Date: Sun, 31 Mar 2002 10:27:44 -0500
From: Peter K. Austin <peterka at>

I understand that US ABC News plans to run a story on its website next Friday April 5th on the topic of endangered
languages. I contributed some materials for the story from my Australian
Aboriginal languages research but I have not seen the story nor the
planned website.

Hopefully it will be an accurate presentation and good publicity for the
documentation of endangered languages. Please feel free to publicise
through your lists and networks.
