Abstract:

Languages are dying at an alarming rate all over the world. Estimates
range from 50% to as much as 90% by the end of the century. This
collection of original papers tries to strike a balance between
theoretical, practical and descriptive approaches to language death
and language maintenance. It provides overviews of language
endangerment in Africa, Eurasia, and the Greater Pacific Area. It also
presents case studies of endangered languages from various language
families. These descriptive case studies not only provide data on the
degree of endangerment and the causes of language death, but also
provide a general sociolinguistic and typological characterization the
language(s) under discussion and the prospects of language maintenance
(if any). The volume will be of interest to all those concerned with
the ongoing extinction of the worlds linguistic diversity.
