Well, I found another dead blog. I guess I’ll just get them all out of the way now.
The Rosetta Project, a Long Now Foundation Library of Human Language supported by the Stanford University Libraries, was a project designed to document a little part of every language in the world. As well as doing this, they also ran a really nice blog, which can be found here. Although the last post was two years ago, their blog kept track of developments within the field of endangered languages, from apps to children’s building blocks in Cherokee to articles on new language loss rates. It also spotlights prominent researchers within the field, and endangered languages that are quite rare.
So it’s pretty cool. But also no longer posting. Why are all of these blogs dead?
