A team of linguists from across the world led by Australian Professor Christopher Moseley has prepared a unique interactive and digital language Atlas to be released on the eve of International Mother Language Day on February 21. The new edition of the Unesco Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger of Disappearing aims to answer questions like: Why do languages disappear? Which parts of the world are most affected? What can be done to save them? The Atlas contains updated information on over 2,500 languages and is available free of charge worldwide.
It will be continually updated and will allow users to produce their own maps, based on a country or region, or to conduct searches by language category
