Guest Speaker

Guest Speaker Dr. Yumiko Ohara December 16 2020

 

Wednesday’s Guest Speaker was Dr. Yumiko Ohara and her presentation was “The “real” language situation in Japan and its implications”. Even though Japan is considered a homogeneous country culturally and linguistically there are other languages within its borders that are in danger of being lost. The Japanese government lists the 7 languages in danger as dialects of Japanese not separate languages. UNESCO claims there are 8 endangered languages including 6 languages in Okinawa.  Dr. Ohara used the expression “thank you” to demonstrate that the languages are mutually unintelligible. In general, if a dialect is being spoken there should be mutual intelligibility. A traditional language that is classified as a dialect can have damaging results such as endangerment or death of the language, loss of traditional knowledge, and loss of identity among others. She directed us to the website www.unesco.org/languages-atlas/index.php to see a map of the world’s languages that are currently in danger.
