Endangered languages



 There was a very interesting segment on the PBS news tonight. It is about
what happens when a language dies and efforts to keep languages alive. It’s
8 minutes long. Here is the URL for it.

This is a sort of a promotion for a special documentary on the same
subject. That is supposed to be on TV soon, and also available online.
