Language Loss & Deforestation

Postby Slava » Tue Jul 29, 2014 9:45 pm

It's not just deforestation, as all land loss seems to contribute to the demise of languages. Here is an interesting article on this topic: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ ... -languages

How important is this phenomenon? Very? Not at all? I find myself conflicted on the loss of essentially already extinct languages. Does it really matter? What do you think?
