LANGUAGE SURVEYS AND WELLBEING
|Title:||LANGUAGE SURVEYS AND WELLBEING|
|Issue Date:||02 Mar 2017|
|Description:||The importance of language to well-being has become increasingly recognized. At the same time, communities are increasingly using surveys to understand issues of language vitality, or language health. Surveys do more than identify language status. They help us to understand patterns of language use and attitudes that often present pitfalls in revitalization efforts. They also help shape community attitudes towards the language and programming depending what questions are asked and how they are asked. In this Talk Story we will address community surveys, focusing on how questions can be asked in such a way that they do not have a negative impact on emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical well-being of participants.|
