UNESCO Language Articles

Check out this website: http://portal.unesco.org/en/ev.php-URL_ID=41344&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html

There are a number of articles relating to language/s, as part of the United Nations 2008 launch of the International Year of Languages.

Here are the titles of the articles:

  • Preaching in the wilderness or banking on the future?
  • Strange language. Let’s say it’s a whale….
  • Languages and immigration: bilingualism is an asset
  • The secrets of Machaj Juyai-Kallawaya
  • The saga of the Ainu language
  • Kyrgyz: an “emerging” language
  • The Indian dilemma

Also, 21 February marked International Mother Language Day, apparently.
