Eve Haque and I are pleased to be guest-editing this special issue of the Canadian Modern Language Review on Race, Migration, and Colonialism in Language Teaching and Learning. Have a look through this call for papers and feel free to send along any questions you might have.
This post looks at two ways of framing discussions of the global language crisis: depoliticized endangerment discourses, and politicized social justice discourses. Available in Catalan and English.

Gaelic in Nova Scotia Among Young People

"We’re approaching a critical mass of young people wanting to teach their children Gaelic,” he says. “Perhaps half of the kids in some Cape Breton communities will be learning Gaelic.

To me personally, we’re not just preserving the language, but the cultural values. This includes caring for the land and our surroundings, and intergenerational mixing and caring.”
Lack Of Appropriate Facilities For Passing Gaelic Onto The Next Generation

It has been really interesting working on the solutions that enable large numbers of parents to pass Gaelic onto their children from birth, which in turn helps both the Gaelic community move forward and the language in the home and family to thrive.

Finding the solutions have not always been easy as it required looking at the whole infra-structure we presently have in and seeing what is missing and what is required.

Strangely enough there is very little difference in what is required in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness or indeed the Western isles.
If anything because of the large population of Gaelic speakers the Western isles is the easiest place to see major changes and positive results and very quickly as well.

We found that there was so little infra-structure of the kind needed anywhere that everyone is starting at the same point in each area especially if we wished to see rapid development and change.

Gaelic medium schools are extremely important but not where passing Gaelic on to the next generation is concerned and we cannot see much change occurring in this sector over the next 10 years. Though one can always hope.

Intergenerational Transmission is important for every language for it to prosper but the facilities required for this to happen for Gaelic in Scotland are simply not there at present.
But Why Would You?

Why would you learn Biblical Gaelic or the Gaelic of the pub or hotel or for going on holiday or discussing politics or even playing traditional music if you wanted to raise your children with the Gaelic of the home or the wider community.

These are all important Gaelic language domains but not very useful for speaking to a one year old child still in nappies and starting to talk.
The "mamnoon" on your post, listed as Persian, is actually an Arabic loan word, rather than Persian, and has Persian equivalents. Of course, it is often used by Persian speakers.
LPP models for former Soviet Republics of Central Asia and Caucasus (Day 1. Starting with 2nd minute) -
Revitalising Gaelic Communities.

In order to revitalise Gaelic communities we need to have an infrastructure that will take at least 90% of adult learners to speaking conversational Gaelic for more than 10 hours at any one time within 12 months or less (prefereably 3 months or less)

It is not right to expect that many of the old or traditional systems of learning we have at present can be used in the same ways as they simply cannot cope with such demands. Why should they as they were designed for a different kind of learning over 200 years ago?

Having a learner student taking 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 15 or 20 years to learn to speak conversational Gaelic simply does not help Gaelic and is a major hindrance to revitalising any living language community.
