SOAS World Languages Institute Podcast: Tongue tied – do you speak your mother's tongue? by SOAS Radio published on 2020-01-29T17:04:29Z Tongue tied – do you speak your mother's tongue? Kúnmi speaks to people who grew up with a home or family language different to a dominant societal one. Heritage speakers, as they're often called (who sometimes do not actually speak the language at all) feel a connection to the associated 'minority' culture which at times leads to complex relationship with the language. In the year of indigenous languages, this episode sought to ask what some people feel their indigenous language is. We heard from two languages (Yoruba and Spanish) and two generations to get their perspective on what it feels to be caught between two tongues. This podcast was recorded at SOAS Radio.
