PBS: The Linguists
Thursday, February 26, 2009

10 - 11:00 pm

This special chronicles the race of two scientists -- David Harrison and Greg Anderson -- to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, India and Bolivia, the linguists confront head-on the very forces silencing languages: racism, humiliation and violent economic unrest. Their journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, revealing communities at risk when a language dies. (CC, Stereo, HD, 5.1)

To say nothing of the languages of the Native American
peoples here in North America. Many have gone
extinct, many have less than 1/2 dozen speakers, many
50 or less and dying by the year. It is so sad.
What a wealth of information they could share.
