What is lost when a language dies?


Language loss is a silent phenomenon – creeping and incremental like erosion.

But what precisely do we lose when a language is no longer spoken?

Perhaps we should be asking: what do we keep when linguistic diversity is maintained?

Professor of Linguistics at the University of Sydney, Nick Enfield hosts a panel at the Sydney Writers Festival with Awaye!’s Daniel Browning, American journalist Russ Rymer and Gadigal language teacher Joel Davison.
