Linguistics Symposium at UW-Milwaukee
In a globalized world where hundreds of languages are expected to become extinct in the 21st century, it is highly relevant to analyze the viability and continuity of threatened languages. The purpose of the 26th Linguistics Symposium is to discuss this impending loss to humankind from a multidisciplinary perspective.
