Language DeCoded: Canadian Inclusive Language Glossary

The words that we use open up a world of possibility and opportunity, one that allows us to express, share, and educate. Like many other things, language evolves over time, but sometimes this fluidity can also lead to miscommunication.  Inclusive language is the deliberate selection of vocabulary that avoid the explicit or implicit exclusion of particular groups, and avoid the use of false generic terms. ​

Language Decoded is a project that is meant to make individuals think before they speak. It is an inclusive language glossary that we hope all can learn from.
