Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All Things Linguistic
   "Folks, there's nothing left from the Linguistics division. We lost all the indigenous languages collection: the recordings since 1958, the chants in all the languages for which there are no native speakers alive anymore, the Curt Niemuendaju archives: papers, photos, negatives, the original ethnic-historic-linguistic map localizing all the ethnic groups in Brazil, the only record that we had from 1945. The ethnological and archeological references of all ethnic groups in Brazil since the 16th century... An irreparable loss of our historic memory. It just hurts so much to see all in ashes."

Cira Gonda, translated by Diogo Almeida, about the fire at Brazil's National Museum.
