The death of language?

"6% of the worlds languages are spoken by 94% of the world's population / The remaining 94% of languages are spoken by only 6% of the population / The largest single language by population is Mandarin (845 million speakers) followed by Spanish (329 million speakers) and English (328 million speakers). / 133 languages are spoken by fewer than 10 people"

"We would spend an awful lot of money to preserve a very old building, because it is part of our heritage. These languages and cultures are equally part of our heritage and merit preservation."
