Description

ABSTRACT: Global language communication has always been a topic of great interest. How and why majority languages evolved is an intriguing topic that has evolved over the centuries. Evidence has been rapidly mounting that suggest that there are only a handful of spoken languages that receive more utility than that of the thousands available today.

However, for as many languages as there exist today, there are numerous languages that go unused or are only spoken by a few people and are headed for extinction.
