4.0 out of 5 stars Language Death - Editor Matthias Brenzinger 27 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is orientated towards Africa (particularly East Africa), the first part of the book has four superb chapters which are applicable to language decay and death everywhere. For this reason I can recommend it to anyone with an interest in language death. I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars because of its concentration on African rather than Indo-European languages.
