Lexicon Expansion


Monday, June 23 10:45 am -12:45 pm

This workshop will introduce participants to the lexical expansion / new words creation in indigenous communities. Drawing largely from the experiences of the Chickasaw Language Committee, participants will examine the various ways that Chickasaw, and by extension their own native languages, create neologisms. Related concerns including documentation, dissemination, community engagement, and language ideologies will be addressed.
