Watch ‘The Linguists’ Documentary Film Trailer Video | Finding Almost Extinct Languages

    We always think of animals and other forms of life becoming extinct…you would never think of languages becoming extinct. I saw this film in Glens Falls, NY in 2008; it’s very interesting. The film takes them around the world – South America, Russia, even an area in the Southwest United States. If you get a chance to see this film – do it. It is a very unique film, and at the end you will probably say “Wow….”.
