Reminder Launch Event: Research Cluster of Linguistics and Language EducationPosted on: Dec 5, 2016
‘Most people in the world are multilingual, and everybody could be; no one is rigorously excluded from another's language community except through lack of time and effort. Different languages protect and nourish the growth of different cultures, where different pathways of human knowledge can be discovered. They certainly make life richer for those who know more than one of them.’
— Empires of the Word: A Language History of the World, by Nicholas Ostler.
