Languages in Peril: A Roundtable Discussion on the Loss of Language

Wednesday, November 16th
2:30-3:30 PM
Milne 208

There are 6,000 languages spoken on our planet and 2,500 of those are
endangered. Come hear firsthand accounts from three speakers of
endangered languages.  These languages are no longer being taught so
there is the chance they will not exist in the next hundred years.
This is a great chance to learn the challenges speakers of a dying
language face.  It’s an open forum discussion so come with questions!
Speakers: Priya Patel, Ariunzayza Damdindorj, Maria Abaya.
