  12. 12. Dawson Speaks Project Celebrating Dawson’s linguistic diversity The linguist Dan Slobin once said: “Human languages are like human faces”, capturing nicely the idea that, underneath obvious and sometimes striking surface differences, both human faces and human languages share deep common structures. Languages can be viewed the same way: on the surface they may seem and sound completely different, but they all share underlying characteristics that make them part of the same –human- communication system….
  13. 13. Dawson Speaks Project Celebrating Dawson’s linguistic diversity In Fall 2012, the Dawson Languages Department started Project DawsonSpeaks: a first attempt to compile a list of languages and language varieties spoken by Dawson students, faculty, and staff. But we also wanted every language to tell a story; we wanted every language to show its human face. The result is a collection of personal love stories with language.
