podcast #23: endanger this! Losing and saving languages, plus tingo

We start with a US-funded attempt to revive a mountain language in Central Asia. Then a conversation with Mr Endangered Languages, Peter Austin.  Finally we hear about the meanings of some fantastically original foreign words. Don’t you wish that English had a word for an interferer at a card game who gives unwanted advice?  Listen on iTunes or here.
