Abstract:

The world’s linguistic diversity is in the hands of a fraction of its population, and is being threatened as communities shift from small languages to the few dominant tongues that are perceived to have economic, political, social and personal power. Although factors such as ‘language attitudes’ have been identified as contributing to this shift, there has been little research into what this means in theory and practice, and how it operates across the diverse language communities of the world. Also, although various individual attempts have been made to ‘revitalise’ languages there has been little comparative research to identify effective policies and practices that can bolster linguistic vitality and support threatened languages. This symposium will take a multidisciplinary approach to explore the forces behind language endangerment and what can be done to respond to them at various levels, and to increase language vitality within communities.
