      Welcome! A number of factors in personal and professional life
      prompt me to start this group as a hopefully constructive response to
      the recently declared UN Literacy Decade. The question of "which
      language(s)" often seems to be omitted from discussion of improving
      literacy, although on a local level in a multilingual society the
      issue becomes (or should become) immediately apparent.

      To its credit, this UN effort pays more explicit attention to this,
      and more broadly to "literacies." But what will this mean in practice
      in a time when many languages are progressively impoverished while
      others disappear?

      This forum is intended to facilitate exchange of information,
      thoughts and experience on this topic.
