About this book
Radical and contentious analysis that predicts that over half the world's languages will be dead by the end of the century. 27 b/w illus.
Half of all known languages have disappeared in the last 500 years and 90 per cent of all languages are in danger of becoming extinct in the next 100. The authors argue that the loss of linguistic and biological diversity is part of a much larger problem - the collapse of our worldwide ecosystem.
