Saving Languages From Extinction

Tunica, Osing, Sorani Kurdish and Dutch sign language—these are among about 500 languages considered critically endangered.

With only a handful of speakers, and no active movement to revive the language, they could be lost to time.

Thankfully, Daniel Bögre Udell is listening.

The co-founder and director of Wikitongues is working with volunteers from all around the world to create an open video archive of people speaking and signing rarely used languages so they can be preserved and passed on to future generations.

If we were fluent, we’d thank Daniel in every language we could.
