Endangered Languages (3205LHS)

Most of the world's 6000 languages will no longer be spoken in a hundred years time, indicative of a huge collapse in linguistic and cultural diversity. Linguistic science has much to learn about diversity and linguistic typology from endangered and disappearing languages. At the same time, linguists have an important role in assisting communities with maintaining and/or revitalising them, so far as possible. This course combines overviews of key issues with a close look at grammars of two endangered languages, one from Australia and one from the Pacific. This involves coming to grips with aspects of their phonology, morphology, syntax, and lexicon, as well as sociolinguistic aspects.This course will consolidate and extend your skills in advanced linguistic analysis and broaden your horizons about the languages of the world. This is a third-year linguistics course. Prerequisites: 1001LHS - Linguistics 1A; 1002LHS - Linguistics 1B; and at least 30CP of other courses from the Linguistics major of the B Lang Ling.
