txpasley commented on the word peripheralize
Being pushed out of use in society, into the periphery. Appears as a quote in a New York Times article on the Endangered Language Kim.
“There’s a whole bunch of reasons linguists want these languages preserved,” Dr. Childs said, “but for me it’s more an emotional thing. It’s not noblesse oblige, it’s capitalist oblige. These people are totally peripheralized.”
