According to this story, “Kevin Scannell, a computer science professor at St. Louis University has created IndigenousTweets.com, a website that tracks speakers of indigenous or minority languages on Twitter. The site is generated by a computer program that trawls the Twittersphere to recognise languages. Scannell has been blogging about his project here.” An interesting and unexpected use of social media. And while we’re on the subject of endangered languages, here‘s a nice Telegraph story by Richard Alleyne, about an “Oxford University mission to save a language spoken by three people,” namely Dusner. I know some of you are even now grumbling about the waste of resources involved in “saving” a language that’s going to die anyway, but read the story before you dismiss it. Thanks, Jeremy and Paul!
