European Parlament worried about European endangered languages

Is there still time to save languages such as Lombard, Polesian and Saterlandic?

Dozens of languages in Europe are not much lost for words as short of speakers with some 120 believed to be dying out. The EP’s culture committee discussed the problem with experts on 20 March. However, MEP François Alfonsi believes the final word on these languages has yet to be said. The French member of the Green group is drafting a report on what can be done to support them.

About jramompichel

Nasci em Santiago de Compostela (1972), mas cresci em Vigo. Cocriei a empresa imaxin|software em 1997 (já choveu) focada nas tecnologias da linguagem sobretudo na tradução automática com projetos como Opentrad (http://www.opentrad.com) e também no multimédia educativo. Escrevi com o Valentim Fagim o livro 'O galego é uma oportunidade / El gallego es una oportunidad'. Também participei com Sabela Fernández na gravação e no roteiro do documentário 'Porta para o exterior', coprodução entre a AGAL e Axóuxere Editora. Gosto da liberdade e do humor. Desordem é progresso.
