Subject: ABC News story on endangered languages

** Editor's Note: LINGUIST List was also interviewed for this story.

I understand that US ABC News plans to run a story on its website next Friday April 5th on the topic of endangered
languages. I contributed some materials for the story from my Australian
Aboriginal languages research but I have not seen the story nor the planned

Hopefully it will be an accurate presentation and good publicity for the
documentation of endangered languages. Please feel free to publicise through
your lists and networks.
