Quite a few, actually.
This is a completely unknown and ignored treasure. If theses languages disapear, old traditions and knowledge of the world will also go away with them. For this reason, it’s important to join Human Language Technologies (spell-checkers, machine translation tools, grammar checkers, etc.) in order to empower their speakers to keep using them.
First of all, we are going to show you a list of these amazing languages and their varieties classified by status of Endangeredness:
- Vulnerable: Most children speak the language, but it may be restricted to certain domains (e.g., home).
- Definitely endangered: Children no longer learn the language as mother tongue in the home.
- Severely endangered: Language is spoken by grandparents and older generations; while the parent generation may understand it, they do not speak it to children or among themselves.
- Critically endangered: The youngest speakers are grandparents and older, and they speak the language partially and infrequently.
