Focus on:

Research and discussions on Language Diversity in the World


Language in the World at the Linguistic Institute of the University of Colorado
The 2011 Linguistic Institute will take place July 7-August 2 on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder, with major sponsorship by the Linguistic Society of America and the University of Colorado Department of Linguistics. The theme of the 2011 Linguistic Institute is Language in the World.
The Institute focus will be on interdisciplinary, empirically based approaches to language that acknowledge its dual nature, both as a real-time interactional strategy and as a product of interaction. An Institute focus will be the documentation and revitalization of endangered languages, with courses that will survey methodologies and available tools and resources.

Segnaliamo un seminario sulle Lingue del Mondo, che rivolge particolare attenzione alle lingue in estinzione e alle pratiche di conservazione e rivitalizzazione. Il seminario si interessa alle lingue studiandole nel loro duplice aspetto di strategia interazionale e prodotto dell'interazione. Il sito offre materiali e spunti di riflessione
