You might not think of languages as endangered species, but in this documentary film – The Linguists – two scientists race to document these languages before they disappear forever.

Film Description: “Scientists estimate that of 7,000 languages in the world, half will be gone by the end of this century. On average, one language disappears every two weeks.”

Can you imagine that? Imagine English (or your native language) being completely gone before you die. That is what many of these small pockets are facing in regards to their languages.

I think what these two scientists are doing is amazing. Though they face danger, I just wish I could have been out there doing the research with them.
