ENDANGERED LOST LANGUAGE

ENDANGERED LOST LANGUAGE

The Mexican indigenous language of Ayapaneco, also known as Nuumte Oote, is in danger of becoming extinct soon. According to experts, the last two people that speak it most fluently are Manuel Segovia, 75, and Isidro Velazquez, 69. Researchers are racing against time to compose a dictionary of the dying tongue. It hasn't been easy however, as both Manuel and Isidro don't actually speak to each other. For some ironic reason, the two don't relate or socialize with one another. The National Indigenous Language Institute still plans on doing what it can to selvage their words. Let's hope that they can!
