Help Save a Dying Language

by Buddy Lindsey

If you know of a dying language and you know people that speak it who are trying to save that language. You should point them to the Rosetta Stone Endangered Language Program. I was poking around their site and noticed they have a program available to help save dying languages. This piqued my interest more since I recently did the post on “Who are the Ainu?” so a dying language was more on top of my mind. Here is the main chunk of the overview.

Rosetta Stone Endangered Language Program

Pass on a Living Language to Future Generations

Around the world, indigenous communities are working to preserve and revitalize their languages. Rosetta Stone is a valuable resource for these efforts. We can help indigenous communities develop editions in their language for their exclusive use.

Throughout North America—from the Mohawk community of Kahnawake in the northeast to the Seminole Tribe in the deep south to NANA Corporation’s Inupiat shareholders in the Arctic. Rosetta Stone has been selected as the technology of choice for language revitalization.

Here are the bullet points of what they offer with their program.

  • Community-Owned
  • Culturally Relevant
  • Keeps Language Integrity
  • Supports Existing Efforts
  • Offers Real Interactivity

I think this is really cool because it helps them and they get to help the world, and it shows they do have a passion for languages, which is cool. I hope a lot of people can find out about this program so we can save as many languages as possible, if for nothing else archival purposes.
