With world-wide environmental destruction and globalization of economy, a few languages, especially English, are spreading, while thousands others are disappearing, taking with them cultural, philosophical and environmental knowledge systems and oral literatures. This book serves as a manual of effective practices in language revitalization. This book was previously published by Academic Press under ISBN 978-01-23-49354-5.

From the Back Cover:

Six thousand languages are spoken in today's world, but while a few are spreading rapidly, thousands of others are disappearing, taking with them important cultural, philosophical, and environmental knowledge as well as the pure pleasure of conversation. We all stand to suffer from such a loss, none of us more so than those whose unique expressiveness is threatened by the possible death of their languages. In response to this crisis, communities around the world have begun to develop ways to keep their languages alive. This book, written by a host of gifted practitioners, is both a collection of detailed accounts of their work and a manual of effective revitalization techniques for people attempting to keep their voices alive.
