Texting and rapping in endangered languages

According to “Hip-hop, texting may help save world’s languages” on the Miami Herald website, teenagers who love to send text messages by mobile phone are doing so in endangered languages, giving renewed hope for revitalization. Languages cited include:

    • San Francisco del Mar Huave (hue)
    • San Mateo del Mar Huave (huv)
    • San Dionisio del Mar Huave (hve)
    • Santa María del Mar Huave (hvv)

In addition, hip-hop music has become a vehicle for expression in endangered languages, including:

See “Huilliche hip-hop song 1” and “hip-hop in Aka – Songe Nimasow” on the Enduring Voices channel of YouTube for two rap songs.
