ANLC announces focus groups

The Alaska Native Language Center (ANLC) has announced two new focus groups, one centering on language revitalization and the other on language contact and change. The groups are planning to meet monthly beginning this fall.

Useful information on the ANLC page includes Gary Holton’s “Mapping Alask’s Native Languages” and Lawrence Kaplan’s “Inuit or Eskimo” with information on whether to use the term Inuit or Eskimo (and why Eskimo is sometimes considered derogatory).
