Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Explores the linguistic characteristics and oddities of some of the world's threatened languages--including Max, Mohaw, Yiddish, Boro, and more--and the diverse forces, from pop culture to global politics that threaten to destroy many languages and the cultures that spawned them. Reprint.


Review:

"A humanistic approach to linguistics and a scintillating read."

Kirkus, 06/01/2003

Review:

"[A] remarkable survey of some small languages of the world that are getting smaller to the point of disappearance, and some that have suffered recent demise."

John A.C. Greppin, Times Literary Supplement, 02/27/2004

Book Description: Mariner Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 142 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In Spoken Here, Mark Abley takes us on a world tour from the Arctic Circle to Oklahoma to Australia in a fervent quest to document some of the world s most endangered languages. His mission is urgent: Of the six thousand languages spoken in the world today, only six hundred may survive into the next century. Abley visits the exotic and frequently remote locales that are home to fading languages and constructs engaging and entertaining portraits of some of the last living speakers of these tongues. Throughout this exhilarating travelogue, he points out that the same forces that put biological species at risk -- development, globalization, loss of habitat -- are also threatening human languages, and with them, something very basic about their speakers cultures.
