Dying languages archived for future generations
Telegraph (Londres), 24/ago/2009. A Cambridge University project to safeguard the world's 6,000 spoken languages has been launched after it emerged half could die out within a generation.
"The World Oral Literature Project aims to help cultures under threat from globalisation create lasting records of their native languages. Still in its inaugural year, the project led by Cambridge University's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, has already handed out around 10 grants to tribes from Mongolia to Nigeria - and the researchers admitted traditional British languages such as Cornish and Gaelic are also at risk."
