Book Description:

The endangerment and death of minority languages across the world is a matter of widespread concern. In this 2002 book, a leading commentator on language issues, David Crystal asks the question, 'Why is language death so important?', reviews the reasons for the current crisis, and investigates what is being done to reduce its impact.
