Words lost forever

Had to share this short documentary I saw today ..

Who Speaks Wukchumni

It seems there are over 7000 different languages in the world with almost 90% of them being spoken by less than 100,000 people .... No wonder so many of these languages are getting extinct and lost. In fact, its believed that 90% of all the currently known languages will be lost forever by 2050. What a shame! :-(

Ps. English is the most widely spoken language after Chinese (Mandarin)..

Maybe it is good if all languages are extinct except for one. Whichever that maybe. We would have one less thing to fight about. No?
