Peruvian Linguistics Blogs
April 23, 2008
I recently came across a vein of Peruvian linguistics blogs, which was very gratifying. When I was first getting Greater Blogazonia up and running a few months ago, I searched and couldn’t locate any, but I knew they had to exist.
My favorite among the blogs I’ve found thus far is Nila Vigil’s wittily titled Instituto Lingüístico de Invierno, which focuses on indigenous cultures, languages, and rights in Peru and neighboring countries. Best of all, she intermittently posts on matters of linguistic policy and education among Peruvian Amazonian indigenous groups. As far as I am aware, she is the only one doing this with any regularity in Peru. She also has a links page that will get you to several other Peruvian linguistics blogs, which serves as great entree into this community of bloggers.
