Century of changes - Julien Carrier

The Inuit faced numerous and important socio-cultural changes during the 20th century, such as the transition from a nomadic lifestyle to the settlement in different communities and the rapid increase of Inuktitut-English bilingualism across the majority of the population. Did the Inuit language also undergo any changes? If yes, can any of these language changes be correlated to socio-cultural ones? Based on the analysis of a corpus entirely collected in the Inuit community of Mittimatalik in Nunavut and from speakers born between 1902 and 1998, I will discuss about different changes observed in the data and their evolution over time.
