There are over 7,000 languages in the world, but approximately one language becomes extinct every two weeks.
Yes. Half of the languages spoken today are in danger of dying out by the end of the century. Areas with a large number of endangered languages include Melanesia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and South America.
There are many dying languages around the world, but many linguists are making efforts to preserve these languages and even help to expand their usage. Many examples that I found include Native American languages. One such language is that of the Assiniboine people of Montana and Saskatchewan, which Indiana University anthropology professor Douglas Parks and his collaborator Linda Cumberland are trying to preserve. The language has suffered as fewer and fewer native speakers remain living and strong cultural influences buffer in on its popularity amongst tribe members.
