With over 7000 languages spoken globally, a mere 23 languages comprise more than half of the world's population. The existence of this linguistic diversity raises intriguing questions: Why do so many languages coexist, and what factors contribute to their survival or decline?

According to the UNESCO Atlas of the World's Languages in Danger, between 1950 and 2010, 230 languages faced extinction, and presently, 3045 languages are classified as endangered. The pressing need to save these languages prompts inquiries into the reasons behind their disappearance and the potential impacts of linguistic extinction. How can we safeguard these endangered languages, and why is it essential to do so?

Linguistics, the scientific exploration of language, delves into the intricacies of its structure, meaning, and application across different contexts. Subfields such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics examine language acquisition, processing, and utilization by individuals and communities.
