2 Wade: “World’s farmers sowed languages as well as seeds” (1) How are crops related to the spread of languages, according to the researchers discussed in this article? What happened to the languages of many of the earlier hunter-gatherer groups? How does the Niger-Congo language family illustrate the connection between agriculture and the spread of languages? ( Note : The article calls this the world’s largest language family, which may be true in terms of the number of languages it contains; but it is not the largest in terms of the total number of speakers.) How did the Bantu languages spread throughout much of central, eastern, and southern Africa? Associated Press: “With world opening up, languages are losers” (1) In what part of the world does the woman discussed in the opening of this article live? What is going to happen to the language she spoke from childhood? About what proportion of the world’s 6000 languages are likely to disappear in this century? What factors reduced the numbers of speakers of the Chamicuro language and other languages in the Amazon Basin?
