This year is officially recognised by the United Nations as the International Year of Languages. It is also important to note and highlight the fact that Australia has topped a list of ‘hot spots’ for the extinction of Indigenous languages. Linguists put the list together from the Enduring Voices project, which has been backed by National Geographic magazine. The project has identified that Australia harbours some of the most endangered languages in the world, with languages from the northern areas, including parts of Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia, as the most threatened.
