Record #104560:

Greenlandic: political development of an Inuit language / Mark Nuttall.

Title: Greenlandic: political development of an Inuit language / Mark Nuttall.
Author(s): Nuttall, Mark.
Date: 1990.
In: Polar Record. (1990.), Vol. 26(159) (1990)
Abstract: Outline of development of modern Greenlandic (Kalaallisut) since missionary activity of 18th century. Also discusses development of publishing and literature: printing house was established in Nuuk in 1850s and newspaper Atuagagdliutit was first published in 1861, merging with Danish-language Grønlandsposten in 1952. Competence in Danish was seen by many Greenlanders as way of achieving social and economic equality with Danes. Danish was dominant in education system. Rich terminology specific to traditional way of life is unused by Greenlanders in large urban centres. Many Danish words have been absorbed into Greenlandic, but descriptive terms and words used in new senses are creating political, social and technological vocabulary. New orthography for West Greenlandic introduced in 1973. Radio Greenland does much to preserve Inuit language and culture.
