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 AMM 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
