A webography Illustrating Language Contact

(Graduate students’ editorial initiative)

The project consists in creating a multimedia database on the theme of Language Contact. The data collected on the internet and classified by themes is the base for lead group discussions on topics unveiled by the webography.

The webography provides short descriptions of the mini-clips (video and audio) classified under the following sub-themes:
Language diversity
Bilingualism
Bilingual education
Linguistic variation
Language change
Language domination
Politics and language contact
Languages, dialects, pidgins and creoles
Language and Immigration
Language endangerment  


Group Discussions Illustrating Diversity in Language Contact

Graduate students’ editorial initiative

The project consists in creating a concrete illustration of what language contact means through the representations of speakers. It provides lead group discussions where the participants are asked to react to documents, and to questions prepared by the moderator in order to help the group reflection progress. These discussions will be filmed and recorded to produce, as a final product, mini clips and short audio recordings.
