Documentation and Revitalisation of Endangered Languages 09-EL-PIE
The course will focus on most aspects of language endangerment: its background, typology, dimension, aspects, course and dynamics, and results - as seen from various perspectives: ecolinguistic, sociolinguistic, ethnolinguistic, language policy, diversity, and language contact/language change theory. The second part of the course will present the best practices and worst-case scenarios in the language revitalisation as well as the relevant theories. The third part will discuss some basic principles and methods in language documentation – as well as some projects on Language Endangerment and Documentation that are currently run at the University of Poznań.
