The green book of language revitalization in practice by Leanne Hinton( )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With world-wide environmental destruction and globalization of economy, a few languages, especially English, are spreading rapidly in use, while thousands of other languages are disappearing, taking with them important cultural, philosophical and environmental knowledge systems and oral literatures. We all stand to suffer from such a loss, none more so than the communities whose very identity is being threatened by the impending death of their languages. In response to this crisis, indigenous communities around the world have begun to develop a myriad of projects to keep their languages alive. This volume is a set of detailed accounts about the kind of work that is going on now as people struggle for their linguistic survival. It also serves as a manual of effective practices in language revitalization. Following are the key features: 23 case studies of language revitalization in practice, from Native American languages, Australian languages, Maori, Hawaiian, Welsh, Irish, and others, written primarily by authors directly involved in the programs; short introductions situate the languages, to help make the languages more 'real' in the minds of readers; each chapter gives a detailed overview of the various kinds of programs and methods in practice today; introductions and maps for each of the languages represented familiarize the reader with their history, linguistic structure and sociolinguistic features; and, strong representation in authorship and viewpoint of the people and communities whose languages are threatened, gives the readers an inside understanding of the issues involved and the community-internal attitudes toward language loss and revitalization.

Sound symbolism by Leanne Hinton( Book )

31 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sound symbolism is the study of the relationship between the sound of an utterance and its meaning. In this interdisciplinary collection of new studies, twenty-four leading scholars discuss the role of sound symbolism in a theory of language. They consider sound symbolic processes in a wide range of languages from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North and South America. Beginning with an evocative typology of sound symbolic processes, they go on to examine not only the well-known areas of study, such as onomatopoeia and size sound symbolism, but also less frequently discussed topics such as the sound symbolic value of vocatives and of involuntary noises, and the marginal areas of 'conventional sound symbolism', such as phonesthemes. The book concludes with a series of studies on the biological basis of sound symbolism, and draws comparisons with the communication systems of other species. This is a definitive work on the role of sound symbolism in a theory of language
Flutes of fire : essays on California Indian languages by Leanne Hinton( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flutes of Fire examines many different aspects of Indian languages: languages, such as Yana, in which men and women have markedly different ways of speaking; ingenious ways used in each language for counting. Hinton discusses how language can retain evidence of ancient migrations, and addresses what different groups are doing to keep languages alive and pass them down to the younger generations
Spirit mountain : an anthology of Yuman story and song by Leanne Hinton( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The oral traditions of the Yuman tribes, who live in the deserts and along the waterways of the lower Colorado River, have remained relatively unknown to outsiders. Spirit Mountain seeks both to disseminate and to preserve these stories and songs in their authentic form by presenting English translations side-by-side with Indian versions. Particular care has been taken to convey the rhythm and flow of the original narration in the spacing, line length and punctuation of the text

How to keep your language alive : a commonsense approach to one-on-one language learning by Leanne Hinton( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do you want to learn the language of your ancestors? Do you want to help save an endangered language? Do you know someone who speaks another language and could help you learn it? If the answer to any or all of these questions is "yes," this book can help. Amidst an epidemic of worldwide language loss, author Leanne Hinton and a group of dedicated language activists have created a master-apprentice program, a one-on-one approach to ensure that new speakers will take the place of those who are fluent in the world's languages. The Master-Apprentice Language Learning Program originated among the indigenous tribes of California, but this is a manual for students of all languages, from Yurok to Yiddish, Washoe to Welsh. Here is a simple, structured series of exercises and activities designed to help you take advantage of the language-learning skills shared by all humans, along with advice to students and their mentors about how to succeed.--From publisher description
Involuntary language loss among immigrants : Asian-American linguistics autobiographies by Leanne Hinton( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This digest draws on a set of linguistic autobiographies written by Asian-American college students in classes at the University of California at Berkeley over the last several years, and examines the pattern of language shift that takes place in the young first- and second-generation student and why this shift takes place. It also looks at the efforts families make to keep their heritage language strong (and why those efforts often do not work) and at those rare people who have succeeded in becoming bilingual, and what happened to make it possible. Specific sections discuss the following: learning English; first language attrition; factors relating to first language retention and attrition; efforts at language maintenance; the University of California, Berkeley environment; and thoughts for future generations.

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the world, individuals in the intimacy of their homes innovate, improvise, and struggle daily to pass on endangered languages to their children. Elaina Albers of Northern California holds a tape player to her womb so her baby can hear old songs in Karuk. The Baldwin family of Montana put labels all over their house marked with the Miami words for common objects and activities, to keep the vocabulary present and fresh. In Belfast, three generations of the Mac Póilin family cluster together in a neighborhood of ''Irish houses'' that strive for bilingual fluency through community education and daily immersion."--Publisher description
