Very good article Mar 22

Very good article, especially the treatment of the complexities of initial contact and acceptance by the "other" to enable fieldwork with speakers of another language. Also insightful in discussing the gradual death and disappearance of some ancient and low-density / increasingly-rare languages.

Will definitely see the film.

Today is Wednesday, March 22, 2017.
