Title: Sustaining dialect diversity across an endangered langauge diaspora
Authors: Shaw, Patricia A.
Issue Date: 30 Sep 2011
Description: Revitalization efforts often confront the issue of standardization vs. the preservation of dialect diversity. This paper discusses a community-initiated research and curriculum development project that honors unique “dialect” features linked to place and family lineage, at the same time as clarifying what characterizes the shared "language" as a unifying identity.
