Prof Ghil'ad Zuckermann argues that the loss of language is more severe than the loss of land.
Of the 7000 languages in the world today, it is predicted that up to 90% will become extinct within 100 years.
In Australia, where I live, out of 250 Indigenous languages, only 15 - just 6% - are alive and kicking, by which I mean their children are native speakers.
The rest are what I like to call "sleeping beauties" - and if we do not take action they could be lost forever. With globalisation, homogenisation and Coca-colonisation there will be more and more groups all over the world added to the forlorn club of the lost-heritage peoples.
If most languages are lost then there are less to speak meaning more people around the world can communicate maybe bringing us closer together. Although a language is a part of some great history and nobody wants to lose history.
