Colbert confronts endangered languages
David Harrison (see our Endangered Languages entry from Sep. 24, 2007) is quickly becoming the King of all Media. David appeared on The Colbert Report last night (Sep. 26, 2007). David emailed us a link to a video of the show, but a better link appears here (please note that David's segment is preceded by a short Doritos commercial). This is a nice segment in which, among other things, David teaches Stephen Colbert to say "I'm going to stab you in the gut with a knife" in Indian. David is also the author of the new book, "When Languages Die," which has also been discussed in Language Log.
