Honoring and empowering endangered languages
University research blog sci-five has published a new blog post by Prof. Dr. Sandra Schlumpf-Thurnher. In it, she talks about endangered languages.
More than one-third of the 7,000 languages worldwide are at risk, according to the United Nations. Every two weeks a language disappears from the world and with it a part of our cultural and intellectual heritage. Especially the indigenous languages are in serious danger of extinction.
