On International Mother Language Day the UN's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and UN agencies participate in events that promote linguistic and cultural diversity. They also encourage people to maintain their knowledge of their mother language while learning and using more than one language. Governments and non-governmental organizations may use the day to announce policies to encourage language learning and support.

International Mother Language Day is a public holiday in Bangladesh, where it is also known as Shohid Dibôsh, or Shaheed Day. It is a global observance but not a public holiday in other parts of the world.

Thanks to timeanddate.com for sharing the information.

Mandy, I love your reference to "Pig Latin"! Thanks!

A very commendable holiday. Though my mother tongue is English, it is sad to see so many beautiful languages disappearing due to globalization.
