Query Details

Query Subject:   History of interest in endangered languages
Author:   Dan Everett
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   Concern for endangered languages has grown dramatically in recent years. I know that there was a huge leap in interest some 12 years ago or so and that interest and concern has been building rapidly since then.

I would like to have a clearer idea of the history, though. I am asking for help, therefore, in identifying publications, conferences, LSA events, etc. that might be identified with the birth of the current interest in endangered languages. I will post a summary if there is a large enough response.

Thanks for your help,

Dan Everett
