On October 3, Yeshiva University socio-linguist and longtime Forverts contributor Dr. Joshua A. Fishman was honored by the Euskaltzaindia, or Royal Academy of the Basque Language, for his contribution to the struggle on behalf of “minoritized” languages.

At a ceremony at the Fishman family’s Bronx apartment, Mikel Zalbide, a representative of the Academy, presented Fishman with an honorary certificate of membership, recognizing his accomplishments on behalf of the Basque language.
