We've Been Called Worse Things

The Economist online rag ran an article recently called God-Loving Linguists. Click the link to read it, I think you'll find it interesting. Joe G., the main linguist talked about in the article, was Gary's Ph.D supervisor at Cornell. The story is mostly about the Ethnologue (of which Gary is the executive editor).

That was really interesting. There's a group of missionaries around where I live working on translating the Lakota language - while a lot of people question why they bother if the younger generations are switching to English.
