"Comparative and Historical Linguistics"
"For those interested in Historical and Comparative linguistics,
including studying languages and cultures, _or they're history_."

Who's history? The languages and cultures, knowledge of which will
otherwise be lost? Or those who are uninterested in this field, whose
existence will be terminated?

Unacceptable ambiguity, IMO.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
