"This book presents an overview of endangered languages with a global coverage. The contributions analyze the present extent and the various kinds of language endangerment by applying shared general indicators for the assessment of language endangerment. The actual study of endangered languages is carefully examined against the ethics and pragmatics of fieldwork. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of linguistics with particular focus on endangered languages, typology, and sociolinguistics as well as to anthropologists and language activists."--BOOK JACKET.
