Week 15: Language Endangerment and Revitalization

This week – our last week before the final! – we’ll be covering a really important topic: language endangerment and revitalization. To learn more about this, please read chapter 49 in Rickerson & Hilton (pp. 214–217) and chapter 20 in David Crystal (pp. 125–130), both on our Readings & Videos page.

Then, submit Quiz #6 – your final quiz! – and post a response to this week’s discussion board thread by 11:59pm on Sunday, 14 May.

You can also take the extra credit quiz. It’s optional, but can help to boost your overall grade by up to 5 points, so I strongly suggest submitting it, especially if you’ve missed any of the previous quizzes. It’s due by 11:59pm on 19 May (i.e. next Friday).

Also, by this point, you’ve each received status update #4, so you should all have a good idea of how you’re doing in the class. Please let me know if you have any questions.
