Dear Empyre,Thanks for the new information. The month's theme seems very interesting and especially apt. I find the usage of terroir particularlyinteresting, finding it rather close to Derridean differAnce. One kind ofnonsameness of course is linguistic. I imagine most on this listserv arealready familiar with positions stressing the importance of extendingbiodiversity to linguistic diversity. I’d just like to add a link to an articleby Albert Bastadas-Boada of the U. of Barcelona, /Linguisticsustainability for a multi-lingual humanity/. Briefly, citing from the article:/Just as sustainable development does not negate thedevelopment and the desire for material improvement of human societies but at one and the same time wants to maintainecosystemic balance with nature, so linguistic sustainability acceptspolyglottisation and intercommunication among groups and persons yet still calls for the continuity and fulldevelopment of human linguistic groups./ Terroir aspectsthen, for this neophyte to Randall’s work at least, would seem to be veryapplicable to linguistic sustainability. I’m sure you’re way ahead of me. IACthe article is easy to search up. Its bibliography is also interesting. The link is /https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236214159_Linguistic_Sustainability_for_a_Multilingual_Humanity/
Best wishes, William
