continuing on - weaving language
Continuing on from the previous post about the rapid loss of languages/cultures, I recommend
Women's Work: The First 20,000 Years
by Elizabeth Wayland Barber, at Occidental College when not on travels and digs.
The book describes the way textiles,
integrate language transmission and story telling.
Not all linguistic records are textual ... some are textural.
