LANGUAGES: Are they worth saving?

Did you know there are 7000 languages in the world -- but within the next 80 years, nearly half of those could disappear…. silencing entire cultures along with them. With languages around the world rapidly ceasing to exist, how can we save them from dying - and is it worth the effort?
