"There is a lot of cultural knowledge that is stored in small language communities that are disappearing," said Marianna Di Paolo, associate professor of linguistics at the University of Utah.
Di Paolo and other scholars with ties to the U.'s Center for American Indian Languages, or CAIL, are working against time to document and preserve vanishing languages and their stories from tribes across the Americas and beyond.
Rather than face desecration or dilution at being converted into a foreign language or known at all by non-practitioners, Di Paolo explained, "there are some traditions and languages that people have decided would be better for them not to continue."
Coyote stories "teach what is morally right, how to be good and how we should relate to the world,'' said Di Paolo, who works with Miller's collection.
Oh My Heck, Flippin' Fetch, 29 April 2000 [cached]
Marianna Di Paolo, chairwoman of the University of Utah's linguistics department, agrees that local euphemisms may skirt the realm of the truly obscene. The intent, though, is the same as that behind the words that may have led to a bar soap snack in years past. "We all know that 'heck' means 'hell,' " she said. "When someone yells, 'Fudge!' we all know they don't mean, 'give me more chocolate.' But we tolerate it in this society because we feel that next to the other words, it's not that bad," Di Paolo said.
Still, there is a danger that someday even "fudge" through its repeated usage as a sort of PG-rated expletive will also be a word no longer uttered in polite society.
"In years to come, we might wonder how this word that means 'chocolate confection' came to have such a horribly profane meaning," Di Paolo said.
