Monday, Feb. 21, was World Mother Language Day. ANTH 354 students will find this article from Smithsonion.com very interesting. It warns us about what is lost whenever a language dies.

Another great source on this and related topics is the book "Light at the Edge of the World" by Canadian anthropologist Wade Davis: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/light-at-the-edge-of-the-world/id382409685?mt=11
