Terminology Workshop

The Department of Language & Culture with the Nunatsiavut Government will be holding a Terminology workshop in Nain from February 9th to the 11th, 2021.

Robyn Martin is the Language Program Coordinator and she says that there were 23 invitations sent out for participants to attend the workshop.

Isumatât are the facilitators of the workshop and this year’s focus will be for older Inuttitut terms.

These could be terms that were used years ago and that are not commonly used anymore and they will be documented to preserve.

Martin adds that there will be participants from Nain, Hopedale, Makkovik, North West River, a participant from the Canadian Constituent and a representative from Inuit Tapiriit Kanadami.

If you have any terms you would like to share you many contact Robyn Martin at 709-922-2051.
