I am asking for people to translate the following sentence into their own language and send it to
firstname.lastname@example.org, with the name of the language in the subject line. The sentence is:
“I am saving my language.”
Predictions by linguists estimate that as many as 90% of the world’s total languages will be threatened with extinction in the next century.
The idea is to produce a statement about how sad it would be to lose the many endangered languages in the world.
If you or anybody you know speaks another first language, particularly people who speak languages with a small number of speakers, it would be great if you could participate and forward this mail asking them to contribute too.
The project will be eventually be displayed at http://www.lostlanguages.net
