This book treats the lack of official status of many of the world's languages, along with other cultural, political, and legal factors, that contribute to a worldwide loss of linguistic diversity and cultural richness.
There are around 6,000 living languages in the world, but as of 2012, less than 4 percent of them can claim official status in one of more of the 196 existing states. This lack of official status, along with other cultural, political, and legal factors, is contributing to a worldwide loss of linguistic diversity and cultural richness.
