     Professor Akira Yamamoto

The keynote speaker for ILI's Native Language Terminology Development
Symposium is Professor Akira Yamamoto.  Akira Yamamoto, professor emeritus
of anthropology and linguistics at the University of Kansas, has been active
in bringing together the language communities and professional communities
for effective, long-lasting language and culture revitalization programs.
His presentation is entitled "Wonderful World of Our Languages: Creating in

In his session, we will explore how each language may form new words and new
expressions. We begin with an exploration of the magic of languages by
examining how language users create words for new cultural items. When new
cultural items come into a language community, the community can approach
new items in different ways: it may reject them; it may borrow terms from
the donor language; the community may apply existing terms to the new items;
or it may create new terms. For example, we will see, in Kiikaapoatowaachiki
spoken in Oklahoma, how speakers differentiate the universe into two parts
through their language in a wonderful and effective way and how they
incorporate new items into their view of the universe. Formation of new
terms shows us the magical capacity of language and the infinite, creative
mind of language users.

 You will find abstracts of other presenters in the symposium brochure.

Participants will learn techniques to assist in enhancing their language
work, resources on state-of-the-art language acquisition theory, an
understanding of hardware and software applicable to terminology
development, and procedures for Tribal government policy makers to integrate
language and terminology with existing systems.
