Reawakening language

last saturday morning (3rd september), 11.00-11.30am, on bbc radio 4
reawakening language (in the the forum series)

“It is thought that at least half of the languages alive today could cease to be spoken by the end of this century. What can we do about it? How do you re-awaken hibernating or dying languages and the cultures that go with them? Or, is some extinction inevitable?
Bridget Kendall explores the positive things that are happening with some minority languages, focusing on Australia, Nepal and Hawaii with linguist experts • Professor Ghil’ad Zuckermann from Jerusalem, and • Dr. Candace Kaleimamoowahinekapu Galla and • Dr. Mark Turin from Canada.”
