Abstract:

"Speaking of Endangered Languages: Issues in Revitalization" provides an
overview of the current state of various indigenous languages around the
world, describes some local responses to maintaining them, and in some
cases suggests a re-examination of the goals and content of indigenous
language retention programs. Each chapter presents a case study of a
threatened language and possibilities for continued vitality through a
description of the history of culture contact in a particular language
community, early attempts at assimilationist-style education, the current
language situation in the community, and recent local grassroots efforts at
language revival and maintenance. Some also include examples of differences
between past and present spoken forms of the language, and the implications
of these for present and future generations of indigenous language learners.

The authors are all actively engaged in research on the maintenance of
indigenous languages, and many of them do applied work in communities as
well. It is hoped that the ideas and approaches presented in this book will
encourage others working in the field of indigenous language revitalization
and maintenance to keep up their efforts, and in so doing consider
approaches to indigenous language education that operate at the local level
and involve various members of the community.
