The Linguists Are Coming! The Linguists Are Coming!

Film Brings Cherokee Language to Life
If current trends aren't soon reversed, the Cherokee language will soon go extinct. NC State's North Carolina Language and Life Project has produced a film documenting the tribe's efforts and sounding a call to save the language. First Language: The Race to Save Cherokee premieres Friday, Nov. 21, at the NC Museum of History.
Why Linguistics at NC State?
Studying language in North Carolina is like dying and going to Dialect Heaven.
