I always knew that there were plenty of different American English dialects across our country, but I didn’t expect quite so much detail on a map of the USA. Click on the image below to see the full sized version – be warned, however, the full sized .png is huge (3567×1878, 301Kb), so you might want to open it and then right click -> save it to your computer and view it that way. So here, it is, a map of indigenous languages, dialects and accents in the USA: It’s amazing to see just how many Native American languages and dialects remain around the nation.

IndoEuropean Origins - GeoCurrents

Thanks to the efforts of Chris Kremer, we have gathered statistics—and made maps—relating Olympic medal count by country to population and GDP, both overall and in regard to specific categories of competition. The series, however, has been put on hold by the … Quentin Atkinson’s Nonsensical Maps of Indo-European Expansion The website that accompanies “Mapping the Origins and Expansion of the Indo-European Language Family” (August 24 Science), maintained by co-author Quentin D.

Language Hotspots

It is widely accepted that the biosphere—the sum total of the planet’s flora and fauna—is in great peril of collapsing as human populations make a massive impact on the natural world. But what is not widely known is that the human cultural “biosphere” —the sum total of all human cultures living on the planet today—is in even more peril. Over half of the 7,000 languages spoken in the world today are likely to disappear this century, and with them we will lose a wealth of knowledge about human history, culture, and the natural environment.

Pour retrouver une langue si vous ne connaissez pas sa famille, utilisez la fonction Edition, Rechercher de votre navigateur. Les langues éteintes n'ont généralement pas été citées.

Somewhere close to a quarter of the total of the world's languages are spoken in the New Guinea region-about 1100 languages.

DELP - Papuan Languages

The New Guinea region as defined here includes the whole of the island of New Guinea and offshore islands like New Britain, New Ireland and Japen and Biak, as well as the adjoining areas of eastern Indonesia, especially the islands of Timor, Alor and Halmahera. Within the New Guinea region are found two large groupings of languages: Austronesian languages, which belong to the far flung Austronesian language family stretching from Southeast Asia to Hawaii and number about 300 in the New Guinea region, and Non-Austronesian or Papuan languages, restricted to the New Guinea region and numbering some 800 languages. It would appear that bound morphological forms are the most resistant to borrowing (again, however, not entirely immune), so that bound morphological forms that appear cognate are the most reliable guide to genetic relationships among Papuan languages. Endangered Languages of Indigenous Peoples of Siberia. The Red Book of the Peoples of the Russian Empire.

In the cliché-ridden propaganda of the Soviet era tsarist Russia was frequently dubbed the “prison of nations”.

The Red Book of the Peoples of the Russian Empire

When the Soviets came into power this “prison”, by virtue of new national policies, transformed into a family of friendly and brotherly nations in whose bosom all the national cultures flourished. To boast of the achievements under the Communist Party leadership, grandiose cultural festivals were arranged in the Soviet republics, folkloristic dance, song and instrumental groups were established and the revival of old peasant culture was encouraged. The slogan “socialist in content, nationalist in form” came to be applied to the new Soviet culture. Behind this deceptive facade of ethnographic originality, the tsarist prison of nations never ceased to exist: russification was carried out on a large scale, nationalist intellectuals were persecuted, a policy of extensive exploitation of land was pursued and nations were continuously resettled and mingled.

List of languages by time of extinction

When the exact time of death of the last remaining speaker is not known, either an approximate time or the date when the language was last being recorded is given. However, the list is not complete. 21st century[edit] 20th century[edit] 19th century[edit] 18th century[edit] 17th century[edit] 16th century[edit] 15th century[edit] 10th to 14th century[edit] Liste de langues mortes. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Lists of endangered languages. In order to be listed, a language must be classified as "endangered" in an academic source quoted.

SIL Ethnologue (2005) lists 473 out of 6,909 living languages inventorized (6.8%) as "nearly extinct", indicating cases where "only a few elderly speakers are still living"; this figure dropped to 6.1% as of 2013.[1] In order to judge if a language is endangered, the number of speakers is less important than the age distribution; There are languages in Indonesia reported with as many as two million native speakers alive now, but all of advancing age, with little or no transmission to the young.

On the other hand, while there are 30,000 Ladin speakers left, almost all children still learn it as their mother tongue, thus Ladin is not endangered in the 21st century. Extinct language. An extinct language is a language that no longer has any speakers,[1] or that is no longer in current use. Extinct languages are sometimes contrasted with dead languages, which are still known and used in special contexts in written form, but not as ordinary spoken languages for everyday communication. However, language extinction and language death are often equated. List of languages by time of extinction.

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Cet article constitue une liste regroupant par ordre alphabétique les langues nationales et construites. Les familles de langues ne sont pas dans cette liste, sauf s'il s'agit à la fois d'une langue et d'une famille de langue. Par exemple, on n'y trouvera pas l'ibéro-roman car c'est une famille de langues. En revanche, y figure l'indo-européen, car c'est une langue morte (même hypothétique) qui est devenue une famille de langues.
