Project description

Mapping the socio-cognitive-linguistic role of language

Language is more complex than what is communicated through words, be it written or spoken. Shaped by cognitive, social and multimodal factors, it should never be studied in isolation. This is why the EU-funded MAPS project will investigate how language interacts with culture and cognition. It will also address issues of preserving linguistic and cultural heritage of indigenous communities. Specifically, MAPS will research the impact of assimilation policies, gender and contact pressure on language, culture and cognition within two groups: the North Sámi people of Norway and the Paamese people of Vanuatu. The findings will further the EU’s efforts to guarantee intercultural integration of both ‘old’ European indigenous minority communities and ‘new’ linguistic group minorities.
