A Loss For Words (new article in the New Yorker)

A must-read article by Judith Thurman on endangered language revitalization will be published in the next issue of The New Yorker​. Thank you for interviewing K. David Harrison for this powerful piece.

Here is a quote from the article: “Even when there is persecution, the challenge, as Harrison sees it, is to ‘increase the prestige of a language so that the young embrace it.’ ”
