Google While I sometimes see Dutch as an endangered language, reality is that with nearly 30 million speakers worldwide, we're actually doing pretty well. Sadly, this can't be said for the 3000 truly endangered languages of the world - nearly half of the world's total number of languages is on the verge of extinction, and with it, large amounts of human culture are in danger of disappearing forever. In collaboration with several universities and language institutions, Google has launched the Endangered Languages Project to document these languages - textually, visually, and auditorially.

ebasconp,

"Maybe I'm quite pedantic here, but please, write in English in this forum."

Hehe, I'd say one deserves a bit of leniency on this considering how article was about keeping alternative languages around. Not that french is endangered, but still it would be extremely ironic to bash non-english posts.
