Newfoundland and Labrador is the easternmost province of Canada. It’s a former colony and then dominion of the United Kingdom. It finally joined Canada in 1949 as ‘Newfoundland and Labrador’.
The province is one of the earliest areas of the New World that was discovered by Europeans. Thus, it has seen European visitors to its shores for over 1000 years. These visitors included speakers fo Norse, Basque, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Irish Gaelic, and Scots Gaelic. However, today all except French and Scots Gaelic have disappeared completely.
How can this Hub of Languages be preserved?
Propose a Language Center for the province that focuses on preserving and propagating the varied languages that existed historically and are now extinct or on the verge of getting extinct.
