"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.

The dean initiated the changes without consulting CAIL's principal faculty member, Marianna Di Paulo, a former linguistics department chair who started and continues to lead the center's project to conserve the Shoshoni language. A member of the Academic Senate, she only learned of the restructuring from the U.'s Aug. 31 press release.
"I am in the process of trying to find out what will happen to me and my project," said Di Paulo, who holds tenure although her position and funding were recently moved from linguistics to the center. She said she intends to continue helping the Shoshone preserve their language.
Oh My Heck, Flippin' Fetch

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.

"Completing this work was a very important milestone in the preservation of the traditional oral culture of the Shoshone people," said Marianna Di Paolo at the University of Utah.
