Language Endangerment Scenarios: A Case Study from Northern Central Sulawesi
This chapter exemplifies the scenario approach to language endangerment. In this approach, language endangerment is not defined with respect to a list of more or less disparate criteria but rather it is seen as the result of a specific and complex constellation of varied factors, some of which may be conducive to language shift, others to language maintenance. The Tomini–Tolitoli languages of northern Central Sulawesi are its main example, and the chapter concludes with a brief assessment of the vitality of each of the eleven Tomini–Tolitoli languages.
