Medium of Instruction in Haiti

Dear all,

In response to the 'Culture and Geopolitics' section of Patrick-Andre
Mather's LinguistList posting ''Medium of Instruction for Creole
Languages'' (posting # 21.3469, dated Mon, 30 Aug 2010):

I would like to alert LinguistList readers that some of my musings on these
issues, in the particular context of post-earthquake Haiti, have now been
published---in the Boston Globe (in the U.S. on June 16) and in Le
Nouvelliste (in Haiti on August 30):



There are also discussions of these and related issues in the Boston Globe
online comments to my Op-Ed article and on the Linguistic Anthropology blog
and the LingAnth mailing list:



I hope these contributions can be helpful to LinguistList readers as well.

Thank you,


Michel DeGraff
