Podcast: Saving Endangered Languages
How can speakers of endangered languages protect their mother tongues from dying? And does modern technology help preserve disappearing speech? Science’s Kerry Klein speaks with Meg Noori and David Harrison about their attempts to protect endangered languages by integrating them into the digital age, part of a session on linguistics at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (which publishes ScienceNOW). The two also participated in a live chat with Science's John Travis earlier this afternoon.
