Parlez-vous boro? : voyage aux pays des langues menacées by Mark Abley ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Les deux ou trois prochaines générations verront la plupart des 6000 langues de la planète disparaître, surtout à cause de l'irrépressible raz-de-marée que représente l'expansion de l'anglais. [L'auteur] nous raconte une foule d'histoires qui toutes affirment que les langues sont importantes. Qu'on soit de l'Oklahoma ou de la Provence, de l'Australie des aborigènes ou de la Terre de Baffin, les problèmes qu'entraînent la disparition des langues et l'appauvrissement de la culture sont les mêmes. Ce livre nous permet d'entrevoir la beauté de langues comme le yiddish et le yuchi, le mohawk et le manx, l'inuktituk et le provençal. Encore plus important, il propose des portraits attachants et inoubliables des gens qui les parlent encore." (cf. quatrième de couverture). [SDM]
