This week's Economist magazine (dated 1st-7th January 2005) has a three page Special Report (pp58-60) on endangered languages. The article covers all the major points in relation to language endangerment, documentation and support, and I think is a balanced and nicely written report. I commend it to anyone interested in the endangered languages issue.

Unfortunately, the on-line version of the Special Report is "premium content" and only available to Economist subscribers.
