In a globalized world where hundreds of languages are expected to become

continuity of threatened languages. The purpose of the 26th Linguistics

multidisciplinary perspective.We invite contributions for the assessment of
this process from Linguistics, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology,
Education, and related fields. Equally welcome is the participation of
practitioners in language revitalization efforts.
We wish to combine theoretical and practical perspectives for the analysis
of the linguistic and social processes involved in language death,
endangerment, documentation and revitalization.
Possible topics include the following:
-The genetic and areal distribution of endangered
-Structural characteristics of endangered languages
-Cultural characteristics of endangered language communities
-Causes of language endangerment
-Documentation of endangered languages
-Language revitalization programs and practices
-Academic ethics and advocacy in language endangerment
