By century’s end, the world’s 7,000+ languages will be cut in half, or worse. When we lose a language, we lose much more than words, says Duke English professor and linguist Julie Tetel Andresen. Andresen is donating profits from her new book to help save the world’s endangered languages.

Andresen describes how she fell in love with languages, why they're disappearing, and what’s being done to save them.
