need of national language policy stressed


Kathmandu, July 9:  Experts concerned have pointed out the need for a national language policy of Nepal that would address the multi-lingual education policy of the country.

Speaking at the national workshop on development of Nepal's language policy organized by Nepal Academy and the Department of Education here today, they said the different interpretation and analysis of the language provision in the constitution was having a negative impact on Nepal's language policy.

Though the latest census showed that there are people of 123 languages of four language families in Nepal, some linguistic communities' language have not received national identity. Linguistic diversity should not only be limited to liability but regarded as a national asset, they added.

Presenting a working paper at the programme, Prof. Dr Dan Raj Regmi said a long-term national language plan was essential in order to take the country towards the path of peace and development.

Also presenting a working paper, Chancellor of Nepal Academy Bairagi Kainla suggested formation of a high-level language commission for the preservation and promotion of languages in Nepal.

Linguist Amrit Yonzon, Director General of Department of Education Dr Lavadev Awasthi, Prof. Dr Hemanga Raj Adhikari, Malla K Sundar, Prof Dr Yogendra Prasad Yadav and Dr Lal Syankarelu Rapacha stressed the need of a national language policy to address all concerns relating to the languages in the country.
At the programme, teachers involved in multi-lingual teaching in Kanchanpur, Palpa, Rasuwa, Dhankuta, Sunsari and Kapilvastu shared their experience of teaching in two or more languages in multi-lingual schools.

Earlier, inaugurating the workshop, Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Ram Kumar Shrestha said as extinction of language would lead to extinction of culture and identity a concrete policy should be developed to preserve and promote languages. RSS
