I am unofficially proclaiming April 14 Language Day as it is the language day of three different languages for three different reasons.
First, it is Georgian Language Day commemorating the date in 1978 when demonstrators in Tbilisi overturned the new Soviet Constitution which declared that Georgian was not the state language. This rare successful reversal maintained Georgian as the official language.
It is also Maldivian Language Day. The Maldivies is an island nation 1200 miles southwest of India. Maldivian is an Indo-Aryan language closely related to the Sinhalese language of Sri Lanka. However, a primer was written in Maldivian which demonstrates that it is a separate language from Sinhalese. Maldives celebrates its language day on the birthday of the author Husain Salahuddin (April 14, 1881 – September 20, 1948.)
April 14 is also K’No Language Day in commemoration of the script devised by Solomana Kante in 1949 as a writing system for the Manding languages of West Africa.
