Abstract

In discussions of language endangerment, language shift and loss due to warand displacement are seldom discussed, and the practice of carrying out documentationprojects with displaced populations is often discouraged. This paperargues in favor of doing documentation work with displaced communities onthe grounds that such work may be urgent, and that objections to the practiceare largely unfounded when the nature of language documentation is carefullyconsidered. It also discusses practical methodological issues for workingin recent immigrant and refugee contexts based on field work on the Somalilanguage Chimiini carried out in Atlanta, London, and Mombasa.
