Abstract

This paper explains the concept of “endangered languages," gives the background to the world7s language situation, and sets out a framework of reasons why language endangerment/death is thought to be negative for mankind. Then, two UK-baced Internet newspapers are examined to see the extent of their coverage of endangered language issues and whether the articles are sympathetic to the cause of endangered languages. The articles are further analyzed, using the framework provided, to gain an understanding of which reasons are being put forward to the general public in popular newspapers to explain the negative consequences of language endagerment.
