International Mother Language Day
The UNESCO has proclaimed February 21 as the International
Mother Language Day. The proclamation came in the
form of a resolution unanimously adopted at the plenary
of the UNESCO at its headquarters in Paris in November
The first International Mother Language Day event
was opened on February 21, 2000 in Paris by the Director-General
of UNESCO Koïchiro Matsuura who stressed that
"by deciding to celebrate mother tongues, UNESCO's
Member States wished to recall that languages are
not only an essential part of humanity's cultural
heritage, but the irreducible expression of human
creativity and of its great diversity."
Highlighting the fact that close to 6000 languages
are estimated to be spoken in today's world, Mr Matsuura
said: "They testify to humanity's astounding ability
to create tools of communication, to its perception
and reflection. They are the mirror of the souls of
the societies in which they are born and they reflect
the history of their contacts. In this sense, it could
be said that all languages are cross-bred."
