«GOLD IS COAL;
HOW LINGUISTIC EXCLUSION TURNS INTO LINGUISTIC WEALTH»
Because language varieties are underrated; Because when we tend to imitate faces (and situations) we put locals in their mouths; Who is she, after all, the relation of the dialect with Modern Greek; And what is the relationship between "bourgeois" and "provincial"; In this meeting we will try to solve myths about the value of dialects and the importance of their use and revival.. We will show that geographical language dialects are, on the one hand, an important tool for cultivating our language awareness, that is, the conscious knowledge we have of our language and its possible expressive ways and, Secondly, a way of understanding the "Other". End, we will present ways to integrate language varieties into language teaching.
