Death of Languages

Whenever you have several different ways of doing the same thing, e.g. recording on video tape, recording on DVD (Digital Video Disc), weights and measures, languages, eventually one scheme will win out. We are spending huge amounts of money for translation in service of our polyglot world. We are holding onto our 7000 odd languages primarily for emotional reasons.
