the Inuit Standardization Symposium.

The symposium dealt with the standardization of Inuktitut. Questions were brought up such as whether or not the language should be standardized, what would be the challenges of standardizing a language with such a variety of dialects, and how would one undertake such a project.

Other topics at the symposium included: the history of the Inuktitut language, the evolution of the language over the years, and the many different dialects and systems of writing, which range from out west in Alaska to as far east as Greenland. All Inuktitut dialects were represented at the symposium.
