Revitalising and Creating Language

In Peru, long discriminated indigenous language Quecha is making a comeback, for example through commentating the FIFA World Cup.

At the Bureau of Linguistical Reality, people can submit new words to describe sensations/experiences that are new.

Whether old or new, plenty of linguistic opportunities for our everyday experiences of language to expand!

Additionally, in Kenya, a programme in prisons is also trying to help men reclaim a conception of masculinity that is not linked to violence.
