LINGUIST 263: Endangered Languages and Language Revitalization (ANTHRO 163A, ANTHRO 263A, LINGUIST 163A, NATIVEAM 163)

Languages around the world are dying at such a rapid rate that the next century could see half of the world's 6800 languages and cultures become extinct unless action is taken now. This course looks at how and why languages die, and what is lost from a culture when that occurs. We will investigate how this trend can be reversed by methods of language documentation and description, the use of innovative technologies, multimodal fieldwork, writing dictionaries and grammars for different audiences, language planning, and data creation, annotation, preservation, and dissemination. We will focus on a number of current programs around the world to revitalize languages. Finally, the course will examine ethical modes of fieldwork within endangered language communities, and the possibilities of successful collaborations and capacity building, focusing especially on Northern California Indian peoples and their languages.

LINGUIST 265: African American Vernacular English

Linguistics 265 is a new, advanced course on African American Vernacular English, intended for graduate students in Linguistics, Education and other fields, and fornundergraduate majors in Linguistics. Students who have taken Linguistics 65 or its equivalent, or who have had an undergraduate introduction to linguistics, arenalso eligible to take this course.nnThe course will discuss in detail some of the descriptive, historical and sociolinguistic literature on AAVE, beginning with the classic book length works on AAVE writtennby William Labov, Walt Wolfram and Ralph Fasold, but including some of the most recent research-based articles on the subject in current and recent journals. Researchninterests of students in the course will help to determine the specific foci within these broad parameters.
