Language Extinction

OUPblog | Blog Archive | When a Language Dies:
"There’s a language dying out somewhere in the world every two weeks or so. It’s a far greater crisis, proportionately speaking, than the threat of extinction facing plants and animals. Half the world’s languages are so seriously endangered that they are likely to disappear this century. That’s 3000 languages, maybe."
We're headed towards a future everyone speaks a language evolved from the dominant languages of today. You can't fight the gorram future.
