Descripción del producto


'This is a superb one-volume, single-author introduction to endangered languages. Full coverage, [an] accessible style, and illuminating examples will make this volume invaluable to novice fieldworkers and wonderfully resonant to veterans.' Nancy C. Dorian, Emeritus Professor, Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania

'This book fills a longstanding gap in the study of language endangerment. Written by a leading specialist in the field, it is clear, accessible and thorough, and is certain to become the definitive textbook for the foreseeable future.' Lenore A. Grenoble, University of Chicago

'… a clear and comprehensive introduction to the varied research being conducted on endangered languages, and with the focus on introducing aspects of fieldwork and methods involved, this work will hopefully pique the interest of many linguistics students to respectfully and thoughtfully engage in documentary and descriptive work that will benefit endangered language communities.' Jenanne Ferguson, Linguist List

Reseña del editor

Most of the 7,000 languages spoken in the world today will vanish before the end of this century, taking with them cultural traditions from all over the world, as well as linguistic structures that would have improved our understanding of the universality and variability of human language. This book is an accessible introduction to the topic of language endangerment, answering questions such as: what is it? How and why does it happen? Why should we care? The book outlines the various causes of language endangerment, explaining what makes a language 'safe', and highlighting the danger signs that threaten a minority language. Readers will learn about the consequences of losing a language, both for its former speech community and for our understanding of human language. Illustrated with case studies, it describes the various methods of documenting endangered languages, and shows how they can be revitalised.
