International Mother Language Day is next week (2/21). For those interested, there are a fair number of pages, groups, etc. about this annual observance on FB. Among them, this IMLD page was set up a few years ago as the outcome of a group discussion, the particulars of which now escape me. FYI, I’m posting some items there that I see via a Google alert. IMLD seems to be evolving into a truly global “multi-local” observance, though still mainly on a very modest scale in most countries. UNESCO also sponsors IMLD events, notably one or two main ones in Paris.
