Interview on Uyghur language in Global Voices

Recently, in anticipation of World Mother Language Day, I spoke with Filip Noubel of Global Voices about my interactions with a group of Uyghur linguists, translators, and language enthusiasts in 2014-16, and how those interactions shed light on language activism intended to modernize the Uyghur language while also “purifying” it of Chinese influence.
