In language we live

64 min.DK/Documentary

A film about the world's linguistic diversity. Of the world's approx. 6,500 languages, one dies every 14 days. The world seems destined to lose half its cultural heritage within the next century. Why do languages disappear and what is the significance of this loss, both to those who speak the languages and the rest of us?
