This handbook examines the reasons behind this loss of linguistic diversity, why it matters, and what can be done to document and support endangered languages. Peter K. Austin and Julia Sallabank. Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics. Cambridge University Press. Available through the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL).
