There's been an interesting discussion here and there was a suggestion to pose a question at ELU as to what cultural considerations should be taken into account by music teachers deciding whether to teach a native American song in translation, transliteration, or by ear (with supplemental information given so the students know what the song is about, what imagery is used, etc.).
I was thinking about asking at ELU Meta whether such a question would fly there. But then I realized that I think that lyrics are a special critter and I'd rather ask the question here.
On the one hand, one might consider such a question extremely subjective. On the other hand, it's an important and fascinating question.
Would such a question be appropriate here?
