Abstract:

Speakers of thousands of the world's languages are now switching to
speaking global tongues, abandoning their ancestral tongues at an
unprecedented rate. As these languages vanish, what exactly is being lost?
This book highlights the complex systems of knowledge embedded in language,
and shows their loss, on the individual and global scales. Language
abandonment is a loss not only to the communities, but to the scholars of
every field, and to humanity as a whole.
