Videos and podcast about language
How come so many different dialects and languages can be found in the Euregio? What about the peculiar language of former miners in Belgian Limburg? And do animals also 'talk' to each other? In the context of International Mother Language Day on 21 February, we present a number of short videos about Maastricht University's language research.
Watch the videos below of professor Leonie Cornips and anthropologist Fien Lindelauff on the interaction between animals, researcher Nantke Pecht on the language of former miners, and Terra Mosana podcast discussing linguistic development in the Euregion Meuse-Rhine.
Terra Mosana is a comprehensive Euroregional heritage project supported by the Interreg Euregion Meuse-Rhine program of the European Commission. The podcast was produced in a collaboration between the Municipality of Maastricht and the Maastricht Centre for Arts and Culture (MACCH) of Maastricht University.
