Screengrab of a map called "Language Hotspots" showing where languages are dying out. A study released in 2007 stated that nearly half of the world's 7,000 languages are disappearing at a rate of one every 14 days.

Sadly, as Dr. Colbert points out, the list does not include Spanish or French, but is made up of mostly indigenous languages like Amurdag, from Northern Australia, where its last speaker uses it to insult his neighbors without their knowing.
