Saving Endangered Languages

The world’s languages are in danger. Every year, dozens of languages disappear, taking with them a wealth of cultural knowledge and history. There are many reasons why languages are endangered, including:

  • Colonization: When one group of people conquers another, they often impose their own language on the conquered people. This can lead to the decline of the conquered people’s language.
  • Migration: When people move to new countries, they often adopt the language of their new home. This can lead to the loss of their native language.
  • Urbanization: As people move from rural areas to cities, they often lose contact with their traditional culture and language.
  • Globalization: The spread of global media and technology can make it difficult for smaller languages to compete.
