Mexico City, Mexico. Forty-three percent of the 6,000 languages that exist in the world are in danger of extinction. In the Mexican case, all of the original languages of the territory that today constitutes Mexico are in serious danger of extinction. But what causes the disappearance of a language? Is it an inevitable process, or can it be reversed? There are many languages in the world that are fighting for survival. Basque is one of those that is successfully developing revitalization plans, with notable results that can help other cases. Come closer and learn about their experience.
To learn more about the Basque case and the important advances that it has achieved in recent decades, there will be an online workshop beginning next week in Mexico on the Experience of Revitalization of Euskera, organized by ENALLT (National School of Languages Linguistics and Translation) at UNAM and the Etxepare Basque Institute, coordinated by Haizea Ellizondo Gorroño.
