so when we gonna talk about how western imperialism and colonialism plays an extremely large role in this
Hawaiian language was almost extinct because America made it a law to cut all Hawaiian language from public school when they illegally annexed Hawaii and thus making Hawaiian parents feel their children won’t make it in the world so they stopped speaking Hawaiian to their kids and forbid them to learn it (giving spankings if heard at home etc) and making English the default language.
In Australia, before colonization by the British, the continent was home to around 250 indigenous languages.
Today, there are only 20 in constant use.
Here’s a picture of North American languages before colonization.
"On language maps of North America depicting Native American languages, part of the southeast has a giant blank spot, where languages disappeared so quickly and completely that nothing at all is known about them. The loss of these languages before linguists could document them is lamentable. However, it is to an even greater extent, incomparably horrifying what this giant blank spot represents in terms of lives lost and cultures destroyed." - Language and Authority: Why languages disappear
Add to this with more examples if you can.
i seriously just had the thought “i wonder if I could rush from the computer to the top of the fridge to squat in the 3 seconds photobooth gives me”

the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
why does this have so many notes? Do this many other people have a problem buying The Notebook (2004) whenever they see it in DVD or VHS?????
