second liguistic question
Given the diversity of thought within the discipline, linguistic anthropology shows how complex and deep the meanings and purpose of language is to each of us, our communities and our culture.
It is said that if a language dies, so does a culture, and vice versa. And we have proof of this as indigenous societies like native people’s across the globe disappear so goes their way of life and language.
Do you think this is true? Could we change this if we elected to do so? There are about 7,000 languages living in the world today (including dialects, etc.). How do you think linguistic anthropology can heighten our common human experience?
