Tweets, texts, blogs and chat sites. New communication platforms are affecting our relationship with the written word, both in dominant world languages and endangered and minority languages. Is language standardisation necessary to establish literacy, or do we endanger languages by reducing them to writing? Join Australian and international authors, anthropologists and linguists to explore the impact of globalisation on languages and on the future of written, spoken and signed communication. Recorded at Written, Spoken, Signed: Linguistic Diversity in a Globalised World conference, presented by the Centre for Research on Language Diversity, La Trobe University.
